Update after state-wide COVID-19 restrictions

We appreciate your patience whilst the dust study was temporarily placed on hold due to state-wide Covid-19 restrictions. Now that South Australia has relaxed some of these restrictions, we are pleased to advise that we have rescheduled site visits to the remaining 5 homes whose residents have kindly volunteered to host a dust monitor. Once we determine the suitability of these locations, we will install monitors and begin streaming data in real-time.

Next steps

In the coming weeks the EPA will invite you to take part in an online air quality data support session. This session will be designed to help you interpret the data that will be streamed live from the dust monitors. It will enable you to understand what the real-live data means and how this relates to what you are experiencing at your home.

The next community working group meeting is planned for November 2021, for residents who joined the community working group in May. We will work through the results from the first quarter and answer any queries you may have regarding the results to date. We hope to host this in-person with regard to ensuring residents safety in regard to any social distancing restrictions. For those of you that are not part of the working group, or if it's not possible to host the session in person, we will publish all of our information to this webpage.

If you have any questions, please contact us on: engage.epa@sa.gov.au or ph: (08) 8124 4216 during business hours.

Consultation has concluded. The EPA continues to support the Department for Energy and Mining in its regulation of Boral on activities within the EPA licence.
