Pollution - diffuse sources (commercial and domestic)
Ineffective,Partially effective,Effective,Very effective

Outputs and outcomes: Generally effective control of diffuse emissions such as volatile organic compounds from commercial premises and particles (wood smoke) from homes benefits air quality at both the airshed and local level. Ambient monitoring against the National Environment Protection (Ambient Air Quality) Measure standards shows that the standards are met on the great majority of days in all major cities. However, complaints about smoke and odour at the local level continue to be a major focus for investigation and enforcement action by state and municipal officials
