Preliminary Site InvestigationFurther information on the investigation process can be found at the investigation process page.
The first stage of the investigation, the Preliminary Site Investigation (PSI), is currently in progress. The PSI will involve a historical review of legacy firefighting foam use and storage to identify where and when the old formulation of firefighting foam was used, how PFAS moves in the environment and people, animals and the environment that may be exposed to PFAS.
Detailed Site Investigation
The Detailed Site Investigation (DSI) will commence in early 2018 and will involve sampling on-site and in the surrounding region. A detailed report will be prepared and shared with relevant government and regulatory bodies as well as the community.
Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessment
The DSI findings will be used to inform the requirement to conduct a Human Health and Ecological Risk Assessments (HHERA). If required, the HHERA will evaluate potential PFAS exposure risks to the human population and ecology.
