Two Caltex petrol stations in Canberra have been conducting remediation works on land believed to be contaminated by leaking fuel storage tanks.

The two independently owned stations, in Kaleen and Mitchell, applied for exemptions related to the work in April last year.

On April 5 an application was lodged with the ACT government seeking an environmental impact statement exemption for work at the Caltex on Maribyrnong Avenue, Kaleen.

Two days later, a similar exemption was lodged with the government concerning remediation work at the Caltex on Lysaught Street, Mitchell.

Contamination was found to present a low risk to human health at both sites.
