Goulburn Remediation Project
The Goulburn Gas and Coke Company (GGCC) originally operated the site, located on Blackshaw Road, as a gasworks between 1879 and the 1970s. In 1979, the Australian Gas Light Company (AGL) acquired GGCC, which subsequently merged into Jemena in 1994. The site is currently owned by Jemena Gas Networks (NSW) Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Jemena Limited.
The historical gasworks-related operations and waste disposal activities onsite have contaminated the soil and groundwater at the site as well as extending off-site in groundwater to the east of the site along part of the foreshore of Mulwaree River. As such, remediation of the former gasworks site and adjacent foreshore area is required and has commenced.
Environmental investigation work
Jemena has completed multiple environmental investigations at the former gasworks to understand the nature and extent of contamination at the site. The environmental investigations undertaken over the past 10 years have helped to inform the requirements of the remediation works. Following the completion of remediation in late 2019 ongoing environmental investigations will be undertaken to ensure the works have been completed successfully.
