Dairy farms can impact local waterways and downstream water users if dairy effluent is poorly managed. Effluent management is the responsibility of the landholder and untreated and unmanaged discharges to waterways are illegal. EPA’s dairy effluent management initiative is in the second year of a five-year program to identify and act on effluent management issues. Through this program, EPA is working with Dairy Food Safety Victoria to ensure food safety auditors inspecting dairy farms across the state report issues relating to non-compliant effluent management. EPA will use this data and other intelligence to identify high-risk sites for inspection.
