Industry:

  • Brown coal mining.
  • Loy Yang Power stations (Huge Brown coal[?] burning power stations)

Before the mining this was a picturesque agricultural town. The lignin decompositon lakes at the local paper mill also cause a serious problem of smell when there is a prevailing westerly wind.

There has been a recent problem with mesothelioma[?] due to asbestos lagging used in some of the old power stations (now demolished).
