5 Star Safety Award: Dampier Salt Project
The team are ecstatic to be part of the working group awarded the annual 5 Star Safety Award on the Dampier Salts Project led by Pieter Zietsman. As a specialist contractor, Apex Envirocare was appointed to assist in the reclaiming of a portion of the sea where a large potion of Salt had collected. The brief required the area to be dammed and have sufficient clearance so that the minerals deposited here could be harvested without the treat of water. Apex Envirocare facilitated this action through the provision of our aqua barriers.

Apex Desludge Minnawarra Lake, Armadale
One of our most recent projects is the desludging of Minnawarra Lake, in Armadale. Apex Envirocare won this open tender which forms part of major upgrades being undertaken by City of Armadale. The goal was to remove the built up sediment in order to improve the water quality in the lake as well as to create more volume. Environmental monitoring was conducted during the project to ensure water quality was not compromised. Large GeoPro Desludging Tubes were filled with the sediment that was removed from the lake, which not only contained the drying sludge but also removed any odours that may have been present.
