Environmental Assessment of the Proposed Project
An Environmental Assessment (EA) for the remediation and development of the Southlands was submitted to the Department of Planning (DoP) in August 2009. The EA describes the project and incorporates detailed studies including a remediation action plan (that has been reviewed by an independent site auditor), hydrology and flooding assessment, traffic study, human health risk assessment and flora and fauna study. The EA also includes a Draft Statement of Commitments that describes the environmental management and monitoring proposed to be undertaken during the construction and operation of the project.
The EA was on public exhibition from 2 September to 7 October 2009. Orica held a community discussion session on 15 September to provide a brief project update and the Department of Planning provided information on the assessment process. To view the report that summarises matters that were discussed at the session, go to the Community Workshop page.
As the EA is a comprehensive technical document, Orica has prepared a project leaflet to provide a summary of the project scope:
