Media release: 15 March 2016

The NSW Environment Protection Authority visited the Leewood site on Friday 11 March 2016.

During the site visit, the EPA inspected the Leewood water storage ponds and met with Santos staff. During the inspection, the EPA found no evidence that produced water is leaking into the environment.

In relation to the pond that has been emptied, the EPA understands that Santos has pumped water from that pond into other ponds at Leewood for operational purposes.

The EPA is currently reviewing data and information relating to the ponds at Leewood. The EPA will communicate its findings when the review has been completed.
