Marino dust study

Marino what a view

On 30 March 2021, the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) invited residents in the Marino area to participate in a dust study. This study will be run over 12 months to determine whether the dust being experienced by the community exceeds national health guidance. A monitoring network has been designed in conjunction with local residents at the first community working group meeting, and real-time air quality and meteorological data will be made publicly available on this site when they are installed.

SA Health is partnering with the EPA to work with the community and assess the findings of the study from a health perspective. For further information and to speak with a member of the Marino Dust Study team, please contact:

Online dust report

7 months

Report an instance of dust here, so that it can be captured with the data as part of the Marino dust study. 

Community input is a vital component of this study. To make a report, please record everything that you can remember about the event including: date and time, the exact location, and other observations such as weather conditions. 

Where possible, photographic and video evidence can be provided and are valuable especially from different angles. Please ensure date and times are accurate on your device. You can go back and edit your own pin at a later date if you wish to add more detail.

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.

What is not a dust report?

General comments on dust at your property. 

Important:  the pin should be dropped at the site where you witnessed the incident.  All pins are able to be seen publicly.  If you drop one in the wrong spot accidentally, please take a screenshot and send it to engage.epa@sa.gov.au and ask for it to be removed.
