All Delta Coal operations must comply with the environmental protection legislation in NSW. Delta's licence specifies the terms and conditions under which the site can operate.
The licence also outlines a monitoring regime for specific substances at each licence monitoring point. It also deems excessive noise and odour as pollutants, and Delta is required to keep a register of any complaint relating to noise, dust, odour or discharges into water.
The Protection of the Environment Operations Act 1997 was amended in 2012 and requires Delta to publish its monitoring data and Pollution Incident Response Management Plan (PIRMP).
The Chain Valley Colliery Environmental Protection Licence (EPL) 1770 identifies what Delta Coal is required to monitor and the levels tied to those emissions.
