The NSW Environment Protection Authority (EPA) protects our environment and the community by being a leader, partner and protector. We are the primary environmental regulator for NSW and our purpose is to improve environmental performance and waste management across the state.

We lead in protecting our air, waterways, land and the health of the community for the future. We work with communities, government and business to reduce our impact on the environment; and we hold people and organisations to account through licensing, monitoring, regulation and enforcement.

Our vision is for New South Wales to have a healthy environment, healthy community and healthy business. We believe healthy ecosystems are the foundation for healthy communities, a healthy economy and for enhancing liveability.

  2. Increasing public awareness of stormwater impact through education
  3. Developing an advocacy program where we’ll share much needed funds with worthwhile charities
