Our flyer with the pollution map (click to enlarge)

CPR Inc produced and distributed a flyer promoting Wednesday's community consultation for the health impact assessment (PDF 2.6Mb) to "hot spot" suburbs including the images of the Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) pollution spread and the image from the front page of our submission to ACTPLA which shows the scale of this large power station compared to Bruce stadium

The map image of Nitrogen Dioxide has four levels of shading in the image from the lowest level of 0-2mg/m3 (micrograms per metre cubed), 2-5, 5-10 and then greater than 10 mg/m3 being the darkest red hot spots

The source of the map is figure 7.1 in the proponents' plume study (Appendix K) on page 29 (page 38 in a PDF reader) available from ACTPLA's website here:
Plume Study, Appendix K of proponents' Preliminary Assessment

The map shows the power station's ADDITIONAL pollution to be added to existing levels caused by Tuggeranong valley's inversion layer, because it specifically is stated to EXCLUDE existing background levels as you will see in the figure's label

Our image is created by Dr Chris Klootwjik who is a life-long research scientist with a geological/geophysical background. He is a Honorary Visiting Fellow at the Research School of Earth Science of the Australian National University, but expresses here his private views that bear no relation whatsoever to the ANU. He holds shares in geothermal energy companies and resides in Macarthur but wants all of Canberra to understand this is not a localised issue.
