Mary
Hill Quarry Oil Spill Independent Report Received

An independent
investigation report into the Mary Hill Quarry oil spill that occurred in June
2013 has been received by the Falkland Islands Government.  The report reviews the circumstances of the
spill, and makes recommendations for implementing plans and procedures for
dealing with any future onshore oil spills, as well as making recommendations
for improving the handling and disposal of waste oil generally. The report will
be considered by Executive Council in September 2013, following which it will
be made public.



 



After the
spill, Members of the Legislative Assembly felt that the incident was of such a
nature that an enquiry should be carried out to investigate the circumstances
of the spill.  The Chief Executive was
asked to draft terms of reference on behalf of MLAs for an enquiry.  Phyl Rendell was appointed as an independent
Investigation Officer to undertake the enquiry, assisted by Adam Cockwell.
