Toxins removed from Taranaki park

Jun 18, 2009

Taranaki Regional Council says it has removed drum remnants and soil contaminated with toxic chemicals, including dioxin, from a New Plymouth park.

Broken-down drums containing chemicals were found last month near a children’s playground at Marfell Park, the site of the city’s former dump.

Sampling came up clear for contaminants and Marfell Park is now safe for playing.
