Notice to stop pollution

You may be given a direction to stop pollution, a pollution abatement notice, or a notice to carry out an environmental audit if either:

  • the Northern Territory Environment Protection Authority (NT EPA) believes on reasonable grounds that you have committed or may commit a general environmental offence, or you have failed to follow a general environmental duty
  • you are the owner or occupier of land that is polluted.

All pollution abatement notices are listed on the NT EPA website.

A notice to carry out an environmental audit can be issued to do any of the following:

  • manage waste
  • remediate contamination
  • measure your compliance with environmental law.
