Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2009 Week 6 Hansard (11 May) . . Page.. 2195..


(2) What continuing consultation activities are planned and when.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) ACTEW has advised that it has dedicated resources to undertake and evaluate community consultation programs for the suite of water supply projects that are currently under way. Feedback is gained through a number of channels, such as the Water Security - Major Projects information phone line, correspondence, one on one meetings with affected members of the community, community group meetings, surveys and feedback forms. Feedback received is channelled into the relevant project and dealt with on a day to day basis. ACTEW is committed to listen to the community throughout delivery of these projects.

ACTEW has further advised that examples of changes to projects as a direct result of community feedback include:

    • the reconsideration of the pipeline route for the Murrumbidgee to Googong Water Transfer;
    • the development of concept designs for revitalising the Cotter Precinct during/post construction; and
    • ACTEW has taken public submissions into account in preparing an Environmental Impact Statement for the Enlarged Cotter Dam.
