Inquiry into the Environment Protection Authority

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.
