Iluka Resources has today informed Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) of an overflow from its freshwater storage dam at its Douglas mine site at Kanagulk, near Hamilton, into the Glenelg River that is believed to have begun this morning.

Iluka Resources has advised EPA that it does not believe contaminated water is leaving the site. However, as a precaution, EPA will inspect the site tomorrow to assess potential environmental impacts and recommends community avoids contact with water in the Glenelg River downstream of the site until otherwise notified.
