During the fire incident, EPA monitored air quality in the area, and published the results on EPA AirWatch.

We have required ARC to monitor for asbestos at the site boundary while works were underway. ARC have monitored for asbestos for more than 170 days. Over this time, all of our monitoring results have been below the limit of detection. This means the community has not been exposed to asbestos during this work.

If you observe waste, odour or dust beyond ARC's site boundaries, please report it to us by calling 1300 372 842. We're here 24 hours.
