Sewage and wastewater related Notifications made under section 32 of the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (the Act) can be made to the Director, Environment Protection Authority by phoning 1800 005 171.
Notification information provided by phone should be confirmed in a follow-up written report prepared by the person responsible within five working days of the Notification.
When recording a Notification relating to wastewater, officers representing EPA Tasmania may use the document A guide on information requirements to help achieve compliance with section 32 of the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (the Guide).
The Guide helps EPA Tasmania to better understand the incident and helps ensure that the person responsible is compliant with the notification requirements of Section 32 of the Act. The Guide may also assist wastewater managers in their preparation to lodge a Notification by phone and the follow-up written report.
