EPA's programs help you with your responsibilities to protect the environment.

For example, we:

  • chair the Taskforce that inspects resource recovery facilities across Victoria to tackle stockpiles of combustible recyclable and waste materials (CRWM) that might pose a fire risk
  • work with large industrial businesses to manage their environmental risks
  • support service stations to prevent leaks from their underground petrol storage systems (UPSS)
  • nominate projects that restore the local environment with the Inspiring Environmental Solutions program.

We have research and prevention programs to protect the environment.

For example, we:

  • manage groundwater studies for the Fishermans Bend urban renewal project
  • prevent illegal dumping with our Illegal Waste Disposal Program. 

We also have programs that help the community get involved in learning about the environment.
