Where development proposals are likely to involve blasting, for example, for the construction of a new road or a mining or quarrying project, the EPA recommends assessment of blasting overpressure and ground vibration in accordance with the Australian and New Zealand Environment Council's 'Technical basis for guidelines to minimise annoyance due to blasting overpressure and ground vibration' (1990).
