Ngapuna Dust Plan
Since the Rotorua Air Quality Action Plan was approved a new trend emerged of summer time air pollution in the Ngapuna area.
Investigation into the increased levels of fine particulates revealed the issue was caused primarily by road and nuisance dust.
A new action has been added to the action plan to reduce dust in summer months. The Ngapuna Dust Management Operational Plan is a three staged approach to reduce road and yard dust by focussing initially on education.
Dust Managements Plans have been prepared for 31 sites.
