Following the site contamination at Edwardstown, Shadow Environment Minister Michelle Lensink initiated inquiry into the operation of the EPA. The Conservation Council of SA put forward a submission for the inquiry.
Our submission draws from the Blueprint referred to above and highlights five major points of concern
- Resources for the EPA
- Information Access for the community
- The Site Contamination processes of the EPA
- Providing a Voice for the Community
- Coverage of the EPA
In addition, the submission highlights a number of suggestions for improvements to the Act should legislative change to the Act be considered by the Inquiry.
