Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA) welcomes the use of WorkSafe’s powers to directly oversee the removal of waste chemicals at the Tottenham fire site as good news for the community.

Chief Executive Officer, Dr Cathy Wilkinson said EPA supported WorkSafe’s action and will work closely with WorkSafe to protect the community.

“The failure of the site owner to adequately meet the terms of notices issued to them by the agencies is intolerable,” said Dr Wilkinson.

Following EPA’s significant contribution to the clean-up of Stony Creek, EPA will continue to do all in its power to protect the community and hold those responsible to account.
