The EPA has a wealth of monitoring data, technical publications, information sheets, guidelines and reports relating to its core activities of licensing environmental activities and enforcing standards that industries, companies and even individuals must meet.
Legislation requires the EPA to have a public register and to make information available for the public to inspect. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on our website, you may be able to request documents via the Public Register Officer.
The EPA also participates in the SA Government Data Directory where our datasets are readily available.
