We need your help!
The success of the dust study will be determined largely by community involvement. There are two ways you can participate:
Join the community working group
If you would like to work with the EPA to determine the location of dust monitors, participate in quarterly meetings to discuss the data, and speak in person with staff from the EPA and SA Health, please contact us to register your interest in joining the community working group. We will arrange meeting times and a local venue that are mutually convenient with the residents who indicate their interest in participating.
Keep a dust diary or make an online dust report
The EPA has an online dust reporting tool available at www.engage.epa.sa.gov.au/Marino. Paper copies of a dust diary can also be used. To make a report, record everything that you can remember about the event including the date and time, your exact location, and other observations such as weather conditions. Where possible, photographic and video evidence are valuable especially from different angles. The EPA can use this information in conjunction with the data provided by the dust monitors. It can assist us to determine the best times and conditions for our Authorised Officers to undertake site visits.
What is a dust report?
A dust report involves providing details of a specific incident. For example, if a plume of dust is seen leaving an uncovered truck, you can report this incident with the time and date of the occurrence.
