On 19 August 2020, the EPA was notified of test results in soil collected at the former Port Adelaide Waste Water Treatment Plant, and in groundwater monitoring bores offsite that are located in reserves and other public land. The results showed per- and poly- fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) above relevant guidelines.
Rest assured WEST is not affected, and our soil is not contaminated. We take pride in creating a safe community for our residents, neighbouring suburbs and visitors and ensure all correct measures are in place during development and construction phases.
The EPA has published information outlining what this means for residents who are affected and users of West Lakes, including a map highlighting the affected areas.
