Decontaminate Hunters Hill Public Meeting
Tuesday, 20 February 2018
7:00 PM
Decontaminate Hunters Hill invite local residents to a Public Meeting to pressure the Government to decontaminate our foreshores.

The carbolic acid and radium processing factories in Nelson Parade closed over 100 years ago. For over 50 years, successive NSW Governments have repeatedly tested the site and prepared remediation plans - Never implemented.

The EPA officially declared the site to be significantly contaminated in 2007 and in 2014 formally ordered the Government to remediate it - Never implemented.

The NSW Parliament held an inquiry in 2008 and the Government committed to Parliament it would remediate the site by 2010 - never implemented.

The most recent remediation plan has been on hold for 4 years.

Recently, the EPA declared residents within 500 metres of the site to be stakeholders - that's 500 households in Hunters Hill.
