When the Hazelwood coal mine closed in 2017, it left behind a massive toxic pit.
Six years on, the mine’s operator, Engie finally has plans to clean it up – but we’re concerned their half-baked scheme to flood the huge mine pit with river water will devastate our environment and seriously harm the local community’s health and future.
Right now, we have an opportunity to ensure Engie’s plans are properly scrutinised.
That’s why we’re calling on Engie to clean up their mess. Sign the petition, calling on Engie to:
- Properly rehabilitate the Hazelwood mine so it’s safe for the community and local environment, for the long term
- Thoroughly investigate the environmental impacts of their current plan
- Scope other rehab options and ensure the community have a say on the decisions that impact us.
Engie needs to know people from the Latrobe Valley, to the heart of Melbourne, to the far ends of the state are calling on them to properly rehabilitate Hazelwood mine – so that the community who has powered our state for decades can have a clean, safe environment to live in.
Together we can make sure Engie does it properly.
