Clean up works progressing well

Friday 16 August, 2013

Parks Victoria is pleased to report that the clean up process at Liddell’s calcine sands site in Bendigo Regional Park is progressing smoothly and on schedule, in accordance with a clean up plan approved by the Environment Protection Authority (EPA).

The clean up works involve the collection of calcine sands from across the site to be placed in a mound that will be capped with clean soil and revegetated.

Last week the foundation for the mound of calcine sands was prepared.

This week trucks will start moving into the site carrying in soil that will be used to cap and seal the calcine sands.  Trucks will be covered to minimise dust from the clean soil and will be washed down prior to leaving the site to prevent calcine sands being carried off the site.

Significant heavy truck traffic to and from the site is expected to continue until November. Traffic management plans are in place and local residents have been informed about this and other aspects of the clean up process at a community meeting in late July.

Parks Victoria will continue to work with nearby residents to keep them informed about progress throughout the clean up process.

The entire project is scheduled to be completed by 31 December 2013.
