On 10 May 2019, the Department issued a $15,000 Penalty Notice to Sibelco Australia Limited (Sibelco) for exceeding the allowable extraction depth limits on the Tanilba Northern Dune Extension Sand Quarry.
The exceedance was identified in a survey undertaken in December 2018.
The Department had identified a previous non-compliance with extraction depth limits, from a survey of a different area of the site in May 2018.
The extraction depth limits were imposed to protect the groundwater resources of the area.
The Department will continue to work with Sibelco to regularly review compliance with extraction depths.
