Bit by bit

Out and about on the fringes of Darwin

The Darwin International Airport  and EPA have been under pressure to release water quality test results for some months after concerns were raised by community groups particularly the Save Rapid Creek group. Both airport officials and the EPA refused to make public the results of water quality testing. Out of concern for the creek a group of citizens got together, bought testing equipment, learned how to collect and test samples and then went out and tested creek water for contaminants…
Turns out there was something to hide after all. Popular Darwin fishing sites were contaminated all along!

Rapid Creek, Many people fish and swim in Rapid creek.

Looks like the bush track could use some fat tire cycle, eh, Peter? :)
Have a Happy Week!
Peace ;)

Too right mate.
Thankfully the salt flats were dry and hard as rock... however there were enough sandy patches to force me off the bike.
