EPA can take businesses and individuals to court if they don’t comply with environmental laws. These laws include the:

  • Environment Protection Act 2017
  • Pollution of Waters by Oil and Noxious Substances Act 1986. 

Prosecutions aim to reduce the harmful effects of pollution and waste on Victoria’s environment and its people.:

A prosecution is a legal proceeding in Victoria’s court system. It’s a way to hold people to account for breaking the law. EPA prosecutions can result in penalties such as:

  • fines 
  • direction to fund a community environmental project 
  • court costs.
