QUESTION: What makes using sump oil for line marking illegal, 12 May 2005, New South Wales Australia
I recently received an inquiry regarding the use of sump oil for line marking on sporting ovals.
When investigating this issue I came across a document titled "Annual Report of the Lead Group Inc 2002 Ten Year Review of Objectives" prepared by Elizabeth O'Brien, Manager Lead Advisory Service Australia (LASA). The following is an extract from the document -"The use of sump oil as a weed-suppressant or dust-suppressant became illegal under the NSW Contaminated Land Act 1997."
Which section of the Act makes it illegal to use sump oil for this purpose?
Any other information in relation to this topic would be greatly appreciated.
Note. The effect of a permit is explained in the note to section 6. This
offence is an "eligible law" for the purposes of Part 7 of the Agvet Code.
