Environment protection includes any activities aimed at the prevention, reduction or elimination of pollution or any other degradation of the environment (e.g. waste water management, protection of soil resources, protection of cultural heritage).
Tasmania's local government environment protection expenditure per capita was $191, well above the Australian local government average of $133. In particular, Tasmanian local government per capita expenditure on waste water was $126, compared with the Australian average of $56, again reflecting the fact that Tasmanian councils tend to treat their own sewage, while in most other States a combination of councils and other State agencies are responsible for sewerage infrastructure, sewage treatment and water protection.
