Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) is continuing the clean up and remediation works at the Lemon Springs site in the state’s north west.

The discovery of liquid waste has significantly reduced. The removal of acetylene cylinders and treatment of contaminated soil continues.

Backfilling of the first excavated sites will commence this month (June), with reused soil that has been remediated on site. 
 
Several additional groundwater wells have been installed on the property to monitor any potential contamination to groundwater. To date there have been no signs of contamination, however EPA will continue to conduct regular monitoring and keep the community well informed.
