Our approach to managing contamination in Victoria
Find out about our approach to managing contaminated land.
Our environment protection laws work alongside the Planning and Environment Act 1987. Together they reduce risks of harm to human health and the environment.
From 1 July 2021, laws strengthen our approach to managing contaminated land and groundwater. The Environment Protection Act 2017 gives more duty holders a stake in managing risk.
