Client: Tasmanian Ports Corporation Pty Ltd trading as TasPorts
Premises: Port of Devonport, Devonport East 7310
Activity: Dumping of dredge spoils within waters within limits of the state
Class of Assessment: 2B
Assessment Commenced: 26/6/2019
The proposal includes dredging approximately 17,000 cubic metres of material from the existing Berth 3 East pocket at the Port of Devonport and construction of an adjacent 7,900 m2 reclaim area for new multilevel roll-on roll-off stern ship ramps. It is likely that rock breaking will be required to remove some of the material. It is proposed that the dredged material will be reused in the reclamation area subject to geotechnical and contaminant testing.
