Sydney is changing
After decades of hard work and determination, this community is set to reclaim nearly 240 acres (97 hectares) of industrial land located in the heart of its downtown.
This historic undertaking includes permanently containing sediment in the Tar Ponds using a cement mix proven to prevent contaminants from spreading into the environment. The hardened material will be capped and the site will be prepped for the next step. Groundwater on the Coke Ovens site will be collected and treated on site to enhance its potential for future use. When completed, a world of possibilities will emerge.
