Salamander Group features in latest Environmental Protection Authority Guidelines.

Australia’s New South Wales Environmental Protection Authority (NSW EPA) recently released its latest “Guidelines for the Assessment and Management of Sites Impacted by Hazardous Ground Gases”.

The guidelines are designed to increase public and professional awareness and understanding of hazardous ground gases, and provide comprehensive guidance for the assessment and management of hazardous ground gas in contaminated land in the Australian state of NSW.

Salamander Group’s technical director, Nathan Boyd stated that, “As an organisation that specialises in technologies that continuously and remotely monitor ground gas emissions, we welcome the latest guidelines from the NSW EPA.

“We are pleased that Salamander Group’s continuous monitoring technology, GasClam®, is featured as an example of field instrumentation currently available to help monitor and collect ground gas data,” said Boyd.

The NSW EPA Guidelines state that, “Although there have been a number of incidents involving ground gases in NSW, other Australian states and internationally, both public and professional awareness and understanding of the problem is limited.

“At the time of preparation of these guidelines, there is no comprehensive guidance for the assessment and management of ground gases in a contaminated land context in NSW.

There is also currently very little formal guidance in other Australian jurisdictions,” continues the NSW EPA Guidelines.

The guidelines can be downloaded from the NSW EPA’s website and are available below.
