Study site feedback survey - Now Open!
The Northern Water Supply project team is partway through a rigorous assessment process to select a recommended study site for inclusion in the business case. The final study site decision will be made by the State Government when it considers the business case.
Selecting where a new plant could potentially be built is critical. There are construction and maintenance costs to consider, as well as ensuring the location allows for access to a suitable source of water and where treated water can get to the regions that need it. We also need to look at impacts to the land and marine environments, cultural and social impacts and how resilient the site will be to further changes in our climate.
The recommended study site selection process involves three main steps
Step 1: Identify regions where a suitable site may be located
Step 2: Screens sites in the regions to determine a list of potentially feasible sites for the NWS project.
Step 3: Select the best site from the short-listed options to recommend as the study site in the business case. (We are here now)
The map below shows the outcome from steps 1 and 2
A decision about the study site will be made by the State Government as part of its overall decision on the business case. It is important to note that there will be no final site selected until all engineering and environmental studies have been completed.
The community is invited to provide feedback on the project and the potentially feasible sites. You can do this by:
- taking the Northern Water Supply - study site feedback survey
- emailing your feedback to the project team email@example.com
- Contacting us on the project contact number 8429 4650
