Narellan Landfill Remediation – Sustainable Remediation
The site at Elyard Street Narellan has had a chequered past, not unlike many brownfields sites in Australia. It has been a quarry, a brick repository and a registered landfill. The site now sits in a prime development location and has the potential to produce economic and social benefits for the surrounding community. Being a former landfill, the range of contaminants present at the site was wide ranging, as well as the form in which these contaminants were present. Previous site investigations had identified contaminants within the solid landfill mass, elevated landfill gas concentrations and also contaminated landfill leachate. Enviropacific was engaged as the principal contractor to deliver the site remediation, with the ultimate objective to deliver a successful, sustainable remediation project rendering the site suitable for its future beneficial use; a development site that no longer posed a risk to the community or the environment.
