Emergency Response to Spills.
TCC has an Emergency Response Manual detailing responsibilities
for Council departments and services to react to spills and environmental
incidents associated with Council activities such as road-works;
wastewater management; and depots. The Manual also details Council
responsibilities to support Main Roads and EPA for fish kills.
At a regional level TCC also provides
assistance when called upon for Marine Oil Spills in association
with Townsville Port Authority, EPA and GBRMPA.
