Upgrade of dust management at Finucane Island and Nelson Point, Port Hedland

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to develop and implement a programme to improve management of dust and reduce the dust impacts from BHP Iron Ore's operations at Finucane Island and Nelson Point in Port Hedland. The proponent has acknowledged that iron ore dust from its operations is an issue of concern to the Port Hedland community and has implemented some dust control measures. In addition, during the assessment of the Hot Briquetted Iron (HBI) project in Port Hedland (EPA, 1995), the EPA recognised that there was a high level of concern from the community about the existing dust problems associated with BHP Iron Ore's operations. These have led to the submission of this proposed programme by the proponent.
