Goulburn

Goulburn Remediation Project successfully completed

Jemena would like to confirm that the former Goulburn Gasworks site has been successfully remediated.  Jemena has met its obligations to remediate the property and has received the Site Audit Statement, confirming that the remediation work has been completed as required. Thanks to the Goulburn Community and Council for their support during the remediation works.

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 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, the remediation of the former gasworks site and adjacent foreshore area was required and has now been successfully completed.

Environmental investigation work

Jemena 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. The remediation works were completed in late 2019, with all remaining environmental investigations completed successfully with the independent Site Auditor issuing the Site Audit Statement for the former gasworks which confirmed the remediation was successfully completed. No further environmental investigation works are required at the site.
