Air pollution reaching extreme levels, warns Hunter Valley council

HUNTER VALLEY winemakers and residents will today step up the campaign against mining in their backyards as the local council warns dust in the region is reaching ”extreme” levels.

In an email to a Singleton councillor on Saturday, the council’s general manager, Lindy Hyam, said she had written to the head of NSW Environment Protection Authority after five separate official ”health alerts” relating to air pollution at Mount Thorley, near Singleton, were issued in a matter of weeks.

Each alert stated that air pollution had ”exceeded national health standards for PM10”, or particulate matter 10 micrometres or less in diameter.
