CS Energy is hosting two community walk in sessions next week for the Biloela community about the PFAS testing near Callide Power Station.
The sessions are designed so that interested community members can drop in at a time that suits them to ask questions and understand the testing to date and upcoming plans for sampling, modelling and investigation.
CS Energy will be joined by Epic Environmental, Queensland Health, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, the Department of Environment, and Science and Banana Shire Council.
The sessions are being held at Hotel Settlers, Wednesday 20 October, 3pm to 7pm and Thursday 21 October 7am to 10am. There is no presentation, community members are invited to simply drop in at a time that suits them.
More information about CS Energy’s PFAS monitoring can be found at csenergy.com.au/environment.
PFAS (per-and poly-fluoroalkyl substances) are a group of manufactured chemicals present in firefighting foams that were historically used at various Australian sites including civil airports, defence bases, ports and large industrial sites.
