The EPA held a community information session on Tuesday 3 December from 4 pm –7 pm at the Folklore Café, Mundy St, Port Adelaide
Per-and poly fluoroalkyl substances or ‘PFAS’ are man-made chemicals that have been used in a range of industrial and consumer products since the 1950s. Staff from the EPA and SA Health talked about where it is found, how it is regulated, and the health research and advice that is relevant to South Australians.
The EPA and the City of Port Adelaide Enfield are partnering to involve the local community in developing and designing an air quality study for Victoria Road and surrounds.
A community panel has been established to design the critical elements of the project, such as the location of sensors in the field. The sensors will capture information on emissions from traffic and air quality and how it may vary along the road and be affected by weather conditions.
