ENVIRONMENT Protection Authority (EPA) board members paid a flying visit to the South East last week to touch base with local government and industries.

Chief executive Tony Circelli said the visit was an opportunity for the team to learn about environmental initiatives and innovation in the region.

"The trip was really about giving the board and executive team the opportunity to talk with leading companies here," Mr Circelli told The Border Watch.

"There is lots of innovation going on and great investment in the region and our role is to make sure the environmental implications of those activities are well managed - which they are."
