Pollution Notification

Comprehensive emergency response plans (ERP) have been developed for Ixom Wyong to limit the consequences and assist in managing an emergency situation which may develop at the site and have the potential to impact either onsite or offsite personnel, property or environment.

The likelihood of a pollution incident that could affect the community from the activities of the site is very unlikely so the risk is low.

 Pollution Incident Response Management Plan 

In accordance with Part 5.7A of the Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997, Ixom Wyong has prepared a Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP). The PIRMP outlines the processes to prevent and minimise the risk of pollution incidents and ensure comprehensive and timely information is provided to relevant authorities and stakeholders.
