The Proposal

TasWater had proposed the installation and operation of a new wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) to service the Rosebery township at Direens Corner, at the end of Chester Avenue, Rosebery.  The WWTP has been designed to receive and treat an average daily flow of 0.41 ML/day, with an expected flow of 1.6 ML/day during wet weather.  Treated wastewater will be discharged from a new outfall to the Stitt River downstream of the Rosebery township.

The proponent had lodged a Permit Application with a supporting Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan (DPEMP) to West Coast Council.

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).

Public Exhibition of Documentation

A copy of the permit application and all plans and other documentation submitted with the permit application (including the DPEMP) were made available for public inspection.  The public comment period is now closed.

Development Proposal and Environmental Management Plan

The purpose of the DPEMP is to provide a source of information upon which interested individuals, groups, government agencies and the Board may consider the environmental impacts of the proposal.

The DPEMP was prepared by the proponent on the basis of the Project Specific Guidelines for preparation of a DPEMP which were provided by the Board.
