Fact sheets provide the community with simple and easy-to-understand information on the background, science and technology associated with the Car Park Waste Encapsulation (CPWE) Remediation Project. Fact sheets are current at the date provided.
Remedial Action Plan (RAP)
The Jan/Feb 2009 "Revised RAP" was superseded by the May 2009 "Amended RAP" to take into account feedback received from the then Department of Environment and Climate Change (now the NSW EPA). In particular, the Department provided feedback relating to groundwater protection.

Human Health and Risk Assessment (HHRA)
The Human Health Risk Assessment (HHRA) associated with the CPWE was undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the HCB Management Plan set out by Australian and New Zealand Environment and Conservation Council (ANZECC). Since the initial assessment in 2002, the HHRA for the CPWE has been incorporated into the Consolidated Human Health Risk Assessment (CHHRA), which was conducted in 2005 and reported under the Groundwater Cleanup Project.
The CHHRA conclusions are considered in light of all monitoring results as they become available, and any change to the risks are reported to appropriate authorities and the local community through the Community Participation and Review Committee (CPRC).
A review of risk issues considering the future use of the CPWE site was published in January 2014.
