Mobil Shut Down for Maintenance
Mobil’s Altona Refinery will be temporarily shut down from October to November 2011 to allow the plant to undergo maintenance including inspections and some equipment upgrades. The maintenance work is likely to produce increased flaring, noise, odours and steam. Let’s hope the EPA will monitor the process carefully to ensure the local environment and community aren’t adversely affected.
The council has also been advised that residents are likely to notice an increase in vehicle and pedestrian traffic around the site during the works.
The Mobil Hotline on 1800 659 527 can provide further details if required.
If you want to report any issues about the environmental or amenity impacts of these works, please contact the EPA’s Pollution Watch Line on 1300 372 842.
