Proposed remedial treatment of the State Engineering Works site, North Fremantle

Proposal description: 

The proposal is to rehabilitate the land previously used by the State Engineering Works in North Fremantle.

The proposed clean up procedure includes removal of waste material from the site to a gazetted landfill at Henderson in the City of Cockburn, and relocation of leachate spoiled sand on site.

Sand whose metal ion content is higher than normal due to leaching of the ions from the waste material, will be relocated on-site above a 12 metre thick limestone base. The site will then be covered by 1.5 metres of clean fill.

Commitments by the proponent include measures to control the dust and noise during the operations. Should further development of the site be delayed, then paper mulch will be applied to the site to prevent dust movement.

Further development of the site is expected to be facilitated by the sale of the rehabilitated land to a developer for a mix of residential housing and public open space.
