IMPROVING ENVIRONMENTAL PERFORMANCE WITH REAL TIME MONITORING
Centennial Coal’s mines operate in sensitive environmental areas and also in close proximity to local communities. Real Time Monitoring (RTM) is used to monitor day to day operational activities at each mine site by providing immediate feedback on noise, water quantity and air and water quality.This real time feedback allows for immediate action to be taken. If elevated noise levels are recorded they can be linked back to the source and managed.
This ensures compliance with the sites licences and planning consents and minimises adverse impacts to the local community and stakeholders.
Centennial is also working to improve the management of each Licenced Discharge Point across the group. This will allow sites to:
1. maximise upstream containment and management of water flows on site; and
2. provide real time monitoring and management of all water discharged from site
