Industrial Environmental Services undertook a major rehabilitation program of works at six sites in regional north-east Victoria that were occupied by Goulburn Valley Water. These included water treatment plants and waste management facilities.
The sites required rehabilitation of stockpiles of hard waste, such as concrete, metal, soil and asbestos containing materials (ACM). Onsite constraints included existing infrastructure, and trees that needed to be maintained.
The project continued over an eight week period, focussed on the segregation of wastes in to their respective waste streams, so that the material was disposed in the most appropriate manner.
The scope of works included:
• Removal and reinstatement of fencing
• Excavate impacted soils
• Abate ACM and sieve Solid Industrial Waste (SIW)
• Test pitting to determine full extent of impacts
• Surface removal of exposed industrial waste
• Segregation of SIW in to different waste streams
• Dispose of SIW & ACM to licensed facilities
• Onsite reuse of processed soils
• Offsite disposal of material to licensed facility
• Removal of ACM pipework/debris
• Clearance certification
Industrial Environmental Services successfully completed the project to the satisfaction of both Goulburn Valley Water and the project’s environmental consultant. Wastes were segregated and subsequently disposed at the most appropriate licensed facility, with IES providing the project team with documentation to substantiate the lawful disposal.
IES’ partnership with strategic suppliers ensures that there is the minimum of delays in undertaking projects, such as this one for GVW.
