Air Pollution


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)
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.



The Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is responsible for addressing issues of air pollution (e.g. odour, smoke, etc.). Residents should contact the EPA on 8204 2004 in the first instance.
