Healthy Waterways Business Case, (c) Model for Urban Stormwater Improvement Conceptualisation (MUSIC) models for assets, as supplied to the Government according to the 2016 Alluvium report, (d) detailed design MUSIC models and (e) the Healthy Waterways Operation and Maintenance manuals.

Mr Rattenbury: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

(a) These reports are still being finalised and will be released on their completion, before the end of this financial year. The Final Report will be posted on the Healthy Waterways website and the Evaluation Report will be made available either directly or via the ACT Government’s Open Access Information Portal.

(b) The Healthy Waterways Business Case (‘Final Supplementary Report - 9 Feb 2016’) was released to you as a part of Freedom of Information (FOI) request 21/42215.

(c) As provided previously, the Government does not hold the MUSIC models for the preliminary designs of assets. The models supplied to the Government in the preliminary design phase (‘Phase 1’) were for the seven subcatchments. These are now available to you in a folder accompanying this response.

(d) The MUSIC models underpinning detailed designs of assets (‘Phase 2’) are now available in a folder accompanying this response.

(e) The Operation and Maintenance manuals are being assessed by documentation officers against criteria for Open Access.

Officers within the Environment, Planning and Sustainable Development have consistently provided information on request on the Healthy Waterways program. This has included data, music models, business cases; and in response to a broad Freedom Of Information request. These continued requests are creating a significant diversion of Government resources. My officials remain available if there is a specific concern to be addressed, however continued broad requests may be seen as an excessive diversion of resources.

Municipal services—street sweeping
(Question No 584)

Ms Lawder asked the Minister for Transport and City Services, upon notice, on 11 February 2022:

Further to the response to question on notice No 480, is the street sweeping optimisation being progressed.

Mr Steel: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

Yes, street sweeping in accordance with the optimisation program has progressed as outlined on

However, due to storm events in late 2021 and early 2022, the program has been affected by approximately four weeks as street sweeping crews have been diverted to assist in additional street sweeping where impacted by storm debris.
