ALEXANDRA MIDDLETON[ ESPERANCE CLEAN-UP & RECOVERY PROJECT IN 2008, A PROJECT TO REVERSE WIDESPREAD CONTAMINATION CAUSED BY YEARS OF BULK HANDLING OF LEAD CARBONATE AT ESPERANCE PORT WAS LAUNCHED. AS WELL AS REMOVING A SIGNIFICANT THREAT TO THE HOMES AND HEALTH OF THE COMMUNITY, THE CLEAN-UP BECAME A 'HEARTS AND MINDS' MISSION -- EMPLOYING AND TRAINING LOCALS, INVESTING ALMOST $20 MILLION IN THE COMMUNITY, AND SEEING THE RETURN OF FAMILIES WHO HAD MOVED AWAY. NATIONAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR WINNER he Esperance Clean-up and Recovery Project (ECRP) was launched in 2008 to reverse contamination of the town site following years of bulk handling of lead carbonate at Esperance Port. e Western Australian Government launched the project in response to community outrage at the impact the contamination was having on locals' health, their previously pristine environment, rain water supplies, home- grown food and local seafood. As well as completing a thorough and comprehensive clean up of contaminated homes and public premises, the project aimed to implement sentinel monitoring that ensured no re-contamination occur red. e Esperance clean-up was extremely complex and of a type and scale without precedent in Australia, involving the decontamination of more than 1700 premises affected to various degrees. Completed in June 2012, the ECRP not only met its objectives, but also demonstrated technical excellence and management best practice in the process, earning the project the accolade of National Project of the Year at this year's AIPM Project Management Achievement Awards. " e ECRP's success at the AIPM awards flowed from outstanding project management of the project and our Total Quality Management (TQM) approach," says WA Department of Transport Project Director Wayne Winchester. " is approach was adopted in recognition of the dual need to provide not only high quality deliverables but also a high quality project management framework which allowed the core processes to be strategically designed, developed, aligned and implemented." The project W hen the project was initially launched the biggest hurdle the project management team faced was the lack of knowledge on the scope and scale of contamination. is impacted the team's ability to accurately deter mine the cost of the overall project. Based on an estimate, the West Australian State Cabinet made $15 million available to the ECRP to commence the clean-up. ( T Photography by: DHP Professional Photography, Esperance
