It has been almost THREE YEARS since the EPA, Victoria’s pollution watchdog, began their coal power station licence review. Now it has stalled without explanation.
It’s not good enough. Send them an OVERDUE NOTICE demanding they come clean by Nov 1, 2020.
It has been almost three years since Victoria’s pollution watchdog – the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) – began a review of the licence conditions for our state’s three remaining brown coal power stations: Yallourn, Loy Yang A and Loy Yang B.
The licences of these three pollution machines need urgent changes to limit the vast amounts of greenhouse gases and toxic pollution they pump out which is harming our health, air and water.
The EPA completed community consultation back in 2018 and began negotiations with power station owners – AGL, EnergyAustralia and Alinta Energy – in June 2019. Now the process seems frozen and the EPA are dodging questions on when it will be finalised and what is likely to be in it.
