Landfill monitoring


Our waste depots

We currently have two environmental licences issued by the Environment Protection Authority to monitor and assess the effectiveness of capping works and environmental status of landfills post closure, and rehabilitation.

Sampling and analysis is completed quarterly and surface and ground monitoring reports provided for the closed Gerroa Waste Disposal Depot (pictured) and the Minnamurra Waste Disposal Depot.

We have developed a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan for the Minnamurra Waste Disposal Depot. This ensures any pollution incidents at the Depot are reported, managed and communicated to the general community.  Appendix A-1 of this document has been updated.  Please click here for pollution incident emergency contact details.



Floodplains and catchment areas

Spring Creek catchment

The Spring Creek Flood Study  was completed to meet the NSW Government’s Floodplain Risk Management requirements.

It focuses on the Spring Creek catchment area that drains to the southern end of Bombo Beach.

The flood study defines the behaviour of flooding in the catchment including; flood levels, velocities, hydraulic categories and provisional hazard categories, and to identify flood-prone land in the event of storm events.
