Compliance and enforcement

Targeting pollution hotspots

EPA has committed to targeting pollution hotspots to improve compliance by industry, land developers and dealing with other sources of pollution in waterways through the A Cleaner Yarra River and Port Phillip Bay Action Plan. Poor business practices, such as poor bunding and chemical storage, and improper waste disposal and stormwater management, can pollute our waterways.

EPA is working with Melbourne Water and local councils to identify pollution hotspots, gather and analyse evidence, identify alleged sources, and when required, take compliance action. This program supports the statewide stormwater contamination project.
