Environment Monitoring Data
The pollution monitoring data on this page is provided pursuant to section 66(6) of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 (POEO Act), which was amended in 2011. There is now a requirement that holders of an environment protection licence make their pollution monitoring data publicly available in a timely manner. The intention of this new requirement is to improve the general public’s access to information regarding the environmental performance of licensed facilities.
Council is not required to publish monitoring data collected prior to 31 March 2012. Copies of all the obtained data are available on written request.

Annual summaries are available for download below and are for the period twelve months prior to the publication of the data. This rolling annual summary is updated monthly in accordance with the requirements of 66(6) of the POEO Act. Note that Ballina WWTP (license 588) is currently in commissioning and monitoring data has not been updated.
