CS Energy is proactively monitoring the impact of the historical use of firefighting foams containing PFAS at our power stations. This work is part of a voluntary program with the Department of Environment and Science (DES) to map and manage historical use of PFAS across Queensland.
We are focussing our attention on our Callide Power Station PFAS monitoring program.
Testing was also undertaken at Kogan Creek Power Station in late 2020 and while PFAS was identified in some locations, they were below the guideline limit for drinking water. We are currently working with our specialist environmental consultant and DES to determine if any additional work is required at Kogan Creek.
The health of the community and our employees is CS Energy’s key priority and will guide our actions.
