Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) What steps are being taken to remediate the vacant former petrol station sites in Campbell and Watson.

Watson (Block 1 Section 17)

Hydrocarbon impacted soils currently remain on-site pending commencement of soil excavations associated with the proposed basement development at the site. These impacted soils will be remediated at the time of excavation, in accordance with an accredited environmental Auditor approved remedial action plan, and will include the use of sustainable bioremediation technologies approved by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA).

Identified impacts to groundwater are being remediated by means of multi-phase vapour extraction technologies. This involves the extraction of hydrocarbon (petrol) impacted water and hydrocarbon vapours from the groundwater aquifer beneath the site.

EPA is awaiting submission of a statutory Site Audit Statement.

Campbell (Block 1 Section 49)

Hydrocarbon impacts to soil at the site have been remediated by means of EPA approved bioremediation technologies. Remediated soils from the site have been approved for beneficial reuse off-site or disposed to facilities suitably licensed by the EPA.

A human health and environmental risk assessment is currently being undertaken to determine whether groundwater remediation is required at the site. This will be considered by the independent Auditor in issuing the Site Audit Statement for the site.
