The Gladstone Area Water Board and SunWater Limited are joint proponents undertaking technical, environmental, social, cultural and economic investigations for the Lower Fitzroy River Infrastructure Project. The project involves the raising of the existing Eden Bann Weir and construction of a new weir at Rookwood on the Fitzroy River, Central Queensland. The purpose of the project is to help meet future demand for water from urban populations, industry and potentially agriculture in Rockhampton, Gladstone and the Capricorn Coast regions.
The Coordinator-General has determined that the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) satisfactorily addresses the terms of reference for the project. The draft EIS has been released for public and agency review and comment.
You are invited to make a submission on the draft EIS including the project’s potential environmental impacts and/or the effectiveness of measures proposed to manage those impacts. The Coordinator-General will consider your submission as part of the evaluation.
