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.
