The first of January 2010 marks the start of the New Year and the beginning of the EPA Division.
The change of name from the Environment Division to EPA Division will provide better alignment and a greater sense of association between the EPA and the staff of the Division who support it. The new name also reflects the administrative and operational environment in which the Division currently operates.
The majority of the Environment Division’s resources are directly in support of the EPA in Tasmania. As such, the name of the Divison has been changed to better identify the work of the Division as supporting the EPA.
The EPA Division’s mission is to “support the EPA to ensure best practice in environmental management, so that Tasmania has a clean, healthy and sustainable environment that supports our economic and social well-being."
