Beverley and Woodville South

Many historical activities have polluted the groundwater in Woodville North.

This area has a proud manufacturing history and past chemical handling practices have contaminated the groundwater and vapour in the soil.

The EPA has undertaken work on private properties and has tested indoor air in some homes for vapour contamination coming up through the soil. In a small number of homes the EPA has installed mitigation systems to reduce this vapour to very low levels, which are considered to be safe over a long
