Dieldrin and schools - will other schools on the Bellarine Peninsula be tested?

The testing for historical chemical contamination is done before a school is built.

This together with recent soil tests showing negligible levels of any chemical of concern, the Department of Education and Training has no current plans for further testing of school land on the Bellarine Peninsula.

The requirements under the land planning scheme remain applicable for any amendments or applications where potentially contaminated land would be used.
