Biomonitoring of Newsprint Mill Wastewater for Norske Skog (formerly Fletcher Challenge Paper, and previous to that, Australian Newsprint Mills Ltd) – YH/6/21 and YH/6/21/3
MDFRC Technical Report
For listing of associated publications, see Biomonitoring of Newsprint Mill Wastewater for Norske Skog Part 1 (annual reports) and Part 2 (presentations and scientific publications).
The 1998 biological monitoring program focuses on Fletcher Challenge Paper’s 2100ML Lake Ettamogah used as an irrigation storage dam for tertiary treated wastewater. Lake Ettamogah provides habitat for water fowl including the protected musk duck (Biziura lobata) and blue-billed duck (Oxyura australis), is rich in microcrustaceans (copepods, daphnids and shrimp) and has been stocked with silver and golden perch. The assessment of long-term bioaccumulation is essential to address questions with respect to the potential impact on local wildlife.
