Awaba Waste Management Facility: Gas and Water Monitoring

Executive Summary

Lake Macquarie City Council carries out both water sampling and gas monitoring at our Awaba Waste Management Facility. This is to ensure we comply with our Environmental Protection Licence.

Water monitoring is carried out quarterly at both surface and groundwater locations. This is to detect the presence of pollutants on site and to ensure they have not entered the surrounding watercourse.

Gas monitoring is carried out monthly on both building sites and waste areas. This is to establish if methane gas (gas produced through the decomposition of waste) is present on site.

Monitoring reports can be found below. For further information about the monitoring programs contact Council on 4921 0333.
