Preliminary Site Investigations for Potential Acquisition, VIC and WA

Non-compliant Chemical and Waste Storage
Industrial operations requiring environmental management plans for compliant storage/disposal of chemicals and waste materials

iEnvi was engaged by an international manufacturing company to undertake preliminary site investigations at two coatings manufacturing facilities in Victoria and Western Australia. The company wished to purchase the sites and required an assessment of the level of environmental and human health risk associated with the coatings manufacturing processes and chemicals at the sites. iEnvi completed historical reviews and site inspections at the sites.
The preliminary site investigation included a review of the onsite processes, historical use of the site and surroundings, onsite chemical storage and waste generation, storage and disposal. iEnvi were able to identify issues at the sites and surroundings that were potential risks to ecological and human health and would require further investigation or management. These potential risks included inadequate chemical storage, leaking chemical waste adjacent to a stormwater drain, potentially contaminating gas discharge and gas station historically located adjacent to one site.
iEnvi were able to provide recommendations to mitigate and manage the identified risks at the sites to ensure compliance with relevant legislation and to ensure minimal impact to human health and surrounding ecological receptors. iEnvi also provided additional information on future risks associated with continued operation of the sites and assisted the company in understanding the level of environmental risk associated with the purchase of the sites.
