(1) The Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) has not created any specific air shed boundary around Cockburn Cement Limited's (CCL) plant in Munster.

The Environmental Protection (Kwinana) (Atmospheric Wastes) Policy 1999 (EPP) was approved by the Environmental Protection Authority in July 1992 and reviewed without change in 1999. The EPP includes an area around Cockburn Cement at its north-eastern boundary of approximately 1.5 kilometres in radius. 

(2)-(3) Not applicable
