Station Pier Air Quality Monitoring Results

The Victorian Ports Corporation Melbourne (VPCM) have released a summary report detailing the findings from a recent 12 months monitoring program of the air quality at the sampling station on Station Pier. On behalf of VPCM a consultant company KMH Environmental was engaged to manage and report on the findings. Click here to access the report.

18 months ago the BCNA approached two of our BCNA members to help us review and analyse the information provided by the monthly and annual reports issued by VPCM. Click here to access their final summary findings. This report was provided by members Ian Evans and Jill Maddox, we wish to acknowledge the time and effort they have both committed to this review and the extremely professional report they have issued. They presented their report to a joint BCNA/VPCM/EPA meeting in June which has led to ongoing further dialog with both the VPCM and the EPA.

The BCNA will continue to lobby the EPA/Port to reassure the community their health is not being comprised by Ship Bunker fuel emission and for the emission levels to be established to best practice standards available.
