Submission on the EPA’s Draft Odour Policy 2001

AEBN has prepared a submission on the EPA’s Draft Assessment and Management of Odour from Stationary Sources. Some of the contentious issues include:

  • The trigger for EPA investigation has changed from 5 complaints from 5 addresses to just confirmed complaints – AEBN is concerned how vexatious complaints will be weeded out before investigation is triggered.
  • Use of modelling methods to determine odour impacts are considered too conservative for practical use for many industrial developments.
  • Encroachment of residential developments to abut existing industrial sites needs special attention. AEBN recommended +3 odour Units be added to the odour criteria along the industrial/urban interface.
