Environmental Monitoring Results

Port of Newcastle has a number of obligations within its Environment Protection Licences (EPL) and planning approvals to undertake environmental monitoring. 

Where required this monitoring data is published to the Port of Newcastle website and can be found below:

AIR QUALITY 

EPL 13181 Mayfield 4 Berth

 

Air quality is monitored by the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and data is available here.

Given the comprehensive nature of the EPA air quality monitoring, in November 2016 the EPA issued a licence variation notice which negated the need for PON to undertake additional site specific monitoring and reporting.

STORMWATER

EPL 13181 Mayfield 4 Berth

 

Under its Environmental Protection Licence with the NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA), PON is required to publish a stormwater monitoring report in the month following a loose bulk cargo operation.

As these cargoes are handled infrequently, in November 2016 the EPA approved a licence variation that removed the requirement to undertake monitoring in months when no loose bulk cargo is handled. Therefore, from 2017 these reports will only be published for the month following a loose bulk cargo operations.
