When Cleanway closed their Tullamarine landfill, EPA issued them with a post-closure pollution abatement notice (PC PAN).
The PC PAN has conditions that require Cleanaway to monitor and report on:
- Leachate. Leachate is a liquid that is formed from rainwater and waste breaking down.
- Offsite groundwater impacts.
- Landfill gas.
- Surface water.
- The landfill cap. The landfill cap is a cover that is put over the closed landfill, to seal it from the environment.
Monitoring results are available through EPA’s Interaction Portal.
