In 2015 Orica divested its former operations at Foreshore Road, Port Kembla. The facility is now operated by Ixom Operations Pty Ltd (IXOM).
Orica is currently planning remediation works at the site.
Orica is planning remediation works over an area of around 0.5 hectares in an existing industrial facility now operated by IXOM. The proposed remediation works aim to mitigate surface water infiltration into an area contaminated with metals. The remediation works will form a voluntary management proposal in accordance with the Contaminated Land Management Act 1997 and the requirements of the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA).
A Remediation Action Plan has been developed and Orica is currently preparing an environmental assessment to be provided to Wollongong City Council to support a development application for the remediation works. Subject to planning approvals, the remediation works are anticipated to occur in 2017.
Further information will be made available on this webpage and in consultation with site neighbours and other stakeholders as the remediation project plans progress.
If you would like further information about this planned remediation project, please call 0423 290 713.
