OPINION: We would like to provide some context to the issues raised in Steve Mitchell's letter (May 29) about the transportation of fertiliser from South Port.

Environment Southland is working with the companies involved in transporting fertiliser from the port to help them improve their practices and to mitigate any unintended discharges from their loads.

As explained to Mr Mitchell when we spoke to him earlier this week, the companies are making changes, gains have been made and more improvements are being worked on.

Where appropriate, Environment Southland takes an educational approach to resolving some issues, but any complaints from the public are taken seriously and responded to.
