Yallourn Coal Power Station reports releasing 2,691,689kg of PM10 in the year to 30 June 2015. PM10 is small particulate matter which can cause serious health effects.
The Australian government says it has been linked to increased respiratory symptoms and premature death.
The VIC Environment Protection Authority alleges Yallourn did not comply with a licence condition, in reference to spill of ash saline wastewater. 8.548 ML of saline effluent spilled into Morwell River.
