Alert removal for Toolern Creek

oil slick on water

On 21st July, EPA was advised of a vehicle leaking fuel into Toolern Creek in Melton South. Several agencies (including Victoria Police and Melbourne Water) responded and attended the site to ensure the spill was contained through the deployment of booms and cleaned up in order to minimise potential impacts on the environment.

EPA was contacted on the following day and was advised that clean-up had been completed and pollution was no longer occurring.
