Harbour’s pollution hot spot revealed

A new study has delivered an alarming report card for a popular fishing waterway on the outskirts of Darwin.

Buffalo Creek has been given the worst rating in the first edition of the Darwin Harbour Report Card.

This means the creek has got the most degraded water quality in the Darwin Harbour region.

The Environment Minister, Karl Hampton, says he has not yet decided what to do to restore water quality but he will be talking to Power and Water, which releases treated effluent into Buffalo Creek.
