MEDIA RELEASE: 29 July 2008
Approximately 30 families from Brookland Greens Estate and surrounds in Cranbourne took the opportunity to find out more about the Stevensons Road closed landfill at a Community Information Day held on Saturday 26 July 2008.
City of Casey staff, together with Environment Protection Authority (EPA) representatives and supported by the Cranbourne Community Information Support Service, gave one-on-one advice, distributed a range of information hand-outs and explained works progress at the closed landfill using an aerial image and photographs taken since the landfill closed in 2005.
As part of the ongoing management and monitoring program of the closed landfill, the City of Casey, in conjunction with the EPA, is offering homes in the Brookland Greens Estate the opportunity to have temporary air monitors placed in their homes, which are able to detect the presence of methane gas. Twenty-seven households signed up to this program at the Community Information Day. All homes that have so far taken up the opportunity of having the temporary in-home monitor have been given the all clear.
Further newsletter updates will be provided to Brookland Greens residents to keep them abreast on ongoing works at the closed landfill.
If any residents have any questions or concerns about the Stevensons Road closed landfill they should contact the City of Casey on 9705 5200.
