Local residents joined us for our seventh community information session, held on Monday, 29 November 2021. It was the first information session held in person in some months – and it was great to be able to chat with people, to hear their feedback and answer questions.
The focus of the information session was sustainability and marine ecology. Several posters were placed around the room, allowing people to read information about the various studies that have been completed or are underway, and then talk to Viva Energy representatives and subject experts directly.
The posters shared the results of the extensive studies that have been completed, and the strategies in place to avoid or minimise impact to local ecology.
Despite its industrial history, Corio Bay is healthy and marine life is thriving, according to recent studies. Modelling of proposed terminal operations based on actual refinery data gathered over 67 years shows there will be little change in the water discharged to the bay. We are pleased that the studies show that the local marine environment won’t be adversely affected by the addition of the new terminal.
If you were unable to attend the session in person, you can download the posters, and access the study summaries.
