The Proposal

Spectran Environmental Management Pty Ltd had proposed to receive, store and remediate potentially contaminated soils, sludge and liquids at its 8 Birdwood Ave, Moonah facility. Spectran intends to treat up to 2,500 tonnes of soil and material and 25,000 litres of liquid material respectively per annum.

The proponent had lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to Glenorchy City Council.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).


Environmental Effects Report

The purpose of the EER is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental impacts of the proposal.

The EER was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of an EER which were provided by the Board.
