The Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC) has set up an air quality monitoring station at Station Pier to measure sulphur dioxide and particulates. This was done in response to concerns by residents about emissions from ships at Station Pier. Monitoring data will be collected over a year and a report prepared.
Representatives from the BCNA recently met staff from the Environment Protection Agency and the PoMC to discuss the collection of data, additional monitoring, and additional records to help interpret the data.
More details will be provided as the work progresses.
