What is MWMCL’s plan to prevent water pollution, and what is the percentage of the water pumped from the Chindwin River compared to the total flow of the river every day?

The site is a 'zero-discharge' site and no water release to the Chindwin River is proposed. The site will also have a series of monitoring stations around the site to check that no pollution of water or groundwater occurs in areas outside of the mine.
The impact of the Project on the volume of water from the Chindwin River is very small with less than 0.03% of the lowest dry season flow being used by the Project.
