Woodville North, Athol Park and Pennington

Many historical activities have polluted the groundwater in Woodville North.

The EPA has been undertaking environmental assessment work in Woodville North, Athol Park and Pennington since 2018. This includes the Woodville North Industrial Precinct, formerly known as the Finsbury Munitions Factory.

This work is to determine whether historical chemical use has contaminated the groundwater (bore water), presenting a risk to human health from using bore water or from vapour containing chemicals coming up through the soil.

If you have any feedback, questions or concerns, please get in touch on:
