The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) is running a second round of workshops for council officers to provide practical information and guidance about vapour recovery technology and compliance. These workshops will be particularly useful to environment, regulatory or planning staff.
The NSW Clean Air Regulation requires the installation of control equipment to reduce petrol vapour emissions at service stations.
On 31 January, 2017 regulatory responsibility for vapour recovery was transitioned to councils, with the EPA continuing to manage non-compliant VR sites.
As the compliance role is new for environment officers within councils the EPA is providing support in the transition process until 30 June, 2017.
Registration for the workshops is limited to two officers per council at the following locations. Please register by 5pm, Friday 24 February 2017:
Tuesday, 7 March (Hurstville)
Thursday, 9 March (Parramatta)
Friday, 10 March (Sydney CBD)
For more information and to reserve your place please register.
