Air Pollution

Dust

The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) deals with pollution in South Australia. Pollution can be reported by contacting the EPA via the following methods:

Phone: 8204 2004 (for general enquiries and to report pollution and environment incidents)
Email: epainfo@epa.sa.gov.au
Website: EPA website

The Community Health and Safety Unit's Environmental Health Team can provide advice on how to reduce dust.

To reduce dust, some simple steps can be taken:

  • Defer earth works and other dust creating activities (where possible) to avoid hot windy days.
  • Water may be used for dust suppression and compaction however it must be applied with a hose fitted with a trigger nozzle or sprayed directly from a specified water truck.
