On 10 July 2018, the Department issued an Official Caution to Clarence Coal Pty Limited for exceeding the noise impact assessment criteria at Clarence Colliery. The noise monitoring undertaken in December 2017 identified an exceedance of the night-time noise exceedance criteria of 7 dBA. The company has been progressively implementing noise mitigation measures in the plant area, and has committed to continuing this program. Noise monitoring undertaken in March 2018 indicated compliance with criteria. The Department has requested that additional monitoring be undertaken by September 2018 to verify that noise emissions meet the criteria.
