Environmental Licences and Monitoring

All Delta Electricity facilities must comply with the environmental protection legislation in NSW. Each power station holds licences under the Protection on the Environment Operations Act 1997. Delta's licences specify the terms and conditions under which each site can operate detailing the limits on emissions deemed polluting to the atmosphere and to lakes and rivers for all designated discharge points at each power station.

The licence at each facility also outlines a monitoring regime for specific substances at each licence monitoring point.

 It also deems excessive noise and odour as pollutants, and Delta is required to keep a register of any complaint relating to noise, dust, odour or discharges into water.

The Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 was amended in 2012 and requires Delta to publish licences and monitoring data and incident management plans for each power station.These are available on the left menu.

Wallerawang and Mt Piper power stations were sold to EnergyAustralia in September 2013. The Environmental Protection Licences for these facilities were transferred to the new owner, and can be found on the Environment Protection Authority website  here.
