Staying healthy in hot weather, fire and emergency information
The Lens Reserve will be temporarily closed during the construction period.
The Crib Point former landfill located at Lens Reserve is currently managed under a Post Closure Pollution Abatement Notice (PCPAN) issued by EPA Victoria. This regulatory notice currently requires the Mornington Peninsula Shire to complete rehabilitation works on the existing landfill cap to improve surface drainage.
Works will be undertaken to regrade the surface to remove depressions and undulations where surface water can pond and potentially impact on the capping layer.
The importation of clean fill material has commenced which will be spread, levelled and seeded. The project is planned for completion in early 2019.
