On Wednesday 16 December, CFA will be releasing a tender on the Victorian Government Tenders website (www.tenders.vic.gov.au) seeking an experienced provider to undertake environmental assessments at the Fiskville site.
This work includes taking and assessing soil and water samples in a grid-like pattern across the entire Fiskville site. More than 1,000 samples will be taken.
CFA has previously engaged independent environmental specialists to undertaken assessment works at Fiskville for areas of the site with the highest potential risks.
The work under this tender will ensure that we complete assessment across all areas of the site and it will contribute to CFA satisfying the environmental audit requirements of the Clean Up Notice issued by the Environment Protection Authority. This work will also contribute to the long-term remediation strategy for Fiskville.
The tender will close mid-January with works expected to start during February and be finalised by June 2016.
