The Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) invited the public, community and industry to provide comment and feedback on the draft Guideline for NT Contaminated Land Guideline
The NT EPA developed this Draft Guideline to:
- provide information about contaminated land and its regulation to contaminated land practitioners and the community
- minimise the risk of adverse impacts of land contamination on human health and the environment in the NT
- establish a process for assessing and, where appropriate, re-mediating contaminated land which presents, or is likely to present, a risk of harm to human health or the environment
- ensure that the NT meets its national obligations and plays its part in Australia meeting its international obligations under national and international agreements relating to contaminated land.
What happens next
The draft Guideline for NT Contaminated Land Guideline will be amended to take into consideration comments received during the comment period. A final version of the Guideline for NT Contaminated Land Guideline will be issued in due course.
