The SF Irrigation Co-operative (SFIC) recently submitted their draft Environmental Review Document to the Environmental Protection Authority (EPA). This is a major milestone for the project. This submission has been collated using extensive scientific research from qualified professionals, who assess the environmental impact of the scheme.
The draft is currently with the regulator for their review period. SFIC anticipate having their final submission back to the EPA in July. This document will be then open for Public Comment, which we are aiming to commence in late July.
A significant amount of work and preparation has gone towards this submission and the SFIC believes that the Environmental Review Document is a sound submission demonstrating that the project is sustainable and manageable.
We will continue to post updates on the environmental review process.
