The Morwell Magistrate’s Court has committed a number of companies to trial on charges laid by EPA under the Environment Protection Act 1970 following a comprehensive investigation into the Hazelwood mine fire which started on 9 February 2014.  

EPA’s Chief Executive Officer, Nial Finegan, welcomed the outcome.  

Given that the matter is still subject to legal process, EPA has nothing further to add at this time.  Details as to court dates will follow in due course.
