The Proposal

Northern Midlands Council has proposed to upgrade the Evandale waste water treatment plant by constructing two new lagoons adjacent to the existing lagoons. This will create two parallel systems of one primary and one secondary lagoon.

The application was referred to the Board of the Environment Protection Authority (the Board) for assessment under the Environmental Management and Pollution Control Act 1994 (EMPCA).

The Proponent lodged a Development Application with a supporting Environmental Effects Report (EER) to the Northern Midlands Council.

The EER was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the project specific guidelines for preparation of an EER which were provided by the Board.
