Developd a detailed delivery schedule sequencing activities describing the end to end project activities. The schedule incorporating the Jemena seven stage governance gateway process, covering detail site investigation, preparation of documentation, sequencing of regularity approval processes, trial dredging and stabilization activities, scoping and tendering, selection of a remediation contractor, remediation and validation activities through to the final validation reporting, signoff and project closure.
Following a detailed site investigation involving extensive sampling, laboratory testing involving the CSIRO, specialist scientists and international research. The Remediation Action Plan (RAP) has been finalized and submitted to the EPA for comment early 2017. This has enabled the commencement of the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) documentation and progression of the required approval process. It is envisaged that the EIS will be available for public exhibition mid 2017 with a potential commencement of remediation during 2018.
