During the environmental audit, the environmental audit tested the site for contamination.

More recently, EPA retested the area to check the audit results. Results showed: 

  • the audit results were consistent with the new testing 
  • the site is unlikely to pose an unacceptable risk to current or future users of the site 
  • zinc levels at the site are well below ecological and health investigation levels. 

The Cairnlea validation sampling reports are available for download.
