Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) has released a video showing how works are being conducted on the Lemon Springs illegal waste dump site in the state’s north west.
The video provides aerial vision of the excavation of the site. Shot by drones, it’s the first time EPA has been able to release vision of the site and clearly shows the scale of the clean up challenge.
The site remediation works are continuing to progress well, with a second excavation site nearing completion. More than 400 tonnes of waste has been removed from the site to EPA licensed facilities.
A second hardstand pad for the treatment of contaminated soil will be constructed in the following weeks which will allow further on-site remediation works to occur.
