District and regional councils around the North Island are granting resource consents for oil exploration with the provision that contaminated wastes are transported out of their regions and dumped in Taranaki. This is unsafe and irresponsible; David Macleod, Chairman of Taranaki Regional Council must act to protect Taranaki land, water and people. Taranaki is a food producing region, not a toxic waste dump, let’s help to keep it this way.
Examples of what will be dumped can be found here in TAG Oils application to GRC.http://gdc.govt.nz/tag-oil-and-apache-corporation-resource-consent-application/
This is a link to information about the drilling and fracking of Taranaki.. It is very well presented and easy to follow. http://climatejusticetaranaki.files.wordpress.com/2011/04/review-of-hydraulic-fracturing-fracking-in-taranaki.pdf
