Addressing environmental impacts
The Western Sydney Airport Environmental Impact Statement released in 2016, is the result of a rigorous analysis of the airport project and its potential impact on the environment.
The analysis took into consideration issues such as:
- air quality
- fuel jettisoning (fuel dumping)
- the potential impact on the Greater Blue Mountains World Heritage Area
- water quality
Measures will be implemented to avoid, reduce or mitigate impacts related to the airport development.
