LeFevre Peninsula Primary School
LeFevre Peninsula Primary School dust monitoring
The EPA received one complaint about dust from the Port Adelaide Waterfront Redevelopment project site from a resident in February 2008. No further complaints were received until June 2008 when an article in the Portside Messenger reported that the school was concerned about dust levels. EPA immediately initiated contact with the school upon learning of the Messenger article.
Since learning of the school’s concerns, the EPA has conducted several site inspections. The EPA has also met with representatives of the school and parents of children at the school to discuss their concerns. Meetings have been held with the LMC and the Newport Quays Consortium to gain commitment to implementing the environmental management plan for the redevelopment site and to undertake a number of additional measures to reduce dust emissions from the site.
