"EPA needs to make the Assessment of the Test Blasting public." - Clr Marghanita da Cruz, Inner West Council

There were three incremental test blasts the morning. One before 10am (approx 9.40am, and two later between 10 and 11.30am.
Temporary Monitoring Equipment was placed on the ground at various locations in the vicinity. There is also other more permanent montitoring equipment like survey markers in footpaths, equipment on electricity poles and inground monitors.
I was advised by the Westconnex personnel that the results of each test were analysed before the subsequent incremented test blast. The results will be provided to the EPA.
