Community Update – December 2023
Welcome to our latest update on the site remediation works at Belmont.
SITE SOIL REMEDIATION WORKS
Site soil investigations reported in the January 2023 Community Update were completed mid-2023, and CSIRO has received the data and Remediation Action Plan (RAP) which is under review.
To reconfirm previous results of soil vapour extraction works in the northeast corner of the site, our consultants recommended that additional soil vapour sampling be undertaken within, and directly adjacent to, the excavation and remediation area, as detailed in the Community Update September 2023. Site works have been completed and borehole data from this investigation will be available to CSIRO late January – early February 2024.
CSIRO will update the community in the new year once data from investigations and the RAP have been fully reviewed and next steps determined.
SITE MANAGEMENT AND MAINTENANCE
In addition to these investigation activities, CSIRO will continue general maintenance of the site including security patrols, vegetation management, perimeter fencing and other property management activities.
