In June and July 2001, EPA Victoria conducted air quality and noise monitoring in Francis Street. The results of this monitoring indicated that the air pollution levels in Francis Street, on occasion, exceeded the air quality objectives (intervention levels) contained in the State environment protection policy (Air Quality Management).
Given that the intervention levels were exceeded in the 2001 monitoring, EPA undertook to conduct further monitoring in Francis Street and to conduct a community health perceptions study in the area. These studies were undertaken between May and August 2002.
The results of the air and noise monitoring are the subject of separate EPA reports. This report provides a summary of the results of the community study.
