The Victorian community has a vital role in protecting the environment. EPA relies on the community to report incidents of pollution, environmental hazard or other activities potentially harmful to the environment.
EPA sets and enforces standards regulating permissible levels of emission, discharge and deposit to the environment. Causing pollution above these levels constitutes an offence. The 'what to report' section below provides examples of the types of emission, discharge or deposit that breach the law and that EPA will investigate.
Contact your council if activity on residential premises is causing pollution or unreasonable noise.
When identifying and reporting pollution, please retain your notes in case we need to contact you to clarify the information.
If you suspect pollution has come from a business you may be able to contact them about it.
