What are Environmental Relevant Activities?

Environmentally Relevant Activities (ERAs) are industrial or intensive agricultural activities that will, or have the potential to, release contaminants into the environment that may cause environmental harm (air, land, water and noise).

The Department of Environment and Science (DES) and other state government agencies regulate higher risk activities, whilst local councils regulate activities with only localised pollution potential.
