Woodvale Evaporation Ponds Complex - Environmental Site Assessment

The Woodvale Evaporation Ponds Complex (WEPC) is a series of ponds historically used to evaporate groundwater from underground gold operations in Bendigo. 

The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) appointed independent environmental consultants Senversa to assess and document the nature and extent of potential contamination in the soil / sediment and groundwater at the site. 

The purpose of the Environmental Site Assessment (ESA) was to provide details of the soil and groundwater conditions at the site and potential impacts to beneficial users.
