Legislative Assembly for the ACT: 2019 Week 07 Hansard (Thursday, 1 August 2019) . . Page.. 2710 ..


(5) For the ACT Healthy Waterways Project (the Project), an analysis of expected economic costs and benefits was undertaken at the Project level, however not at the individual water quality asset level. A large number of potential water quality assets were considered and narrowed down to a short list of preferred assets, based on a multi criteria analysis that considered a broad range of factors. The multi criteria analysis included expected performance of each of the assets on the basis of removal of nitrogen, phosphorus and sediment.

(6) A decision to move TG023 from the priority to the reserve list was made following design and construction feasibility studies.

(7) The decisions to move TG023 from the priority to the reserve list was endorsed by the ACT Healthy Waterway Project Control Group on 22 August 2017.

(8) Design and construction feasibility identified that TG023 would potentially interface with the future Isabella Drive widening. Asset redesign would reduce the size and subsequent treatment capability of the asset making it less attractive from a pollution reduction perspective than TG029.

(9) See response to Question 5.

(10) TG029 was progressed after further consideration in the feasibility study, on the basis of:

cost effective achievement of water quality outcomes

the asset having lower construction risks or risks from latent conditions (contamination)

statutory approvals, utilities interface, and construction program

an achievable construction program with completion certainty by the Commonwealth’s construction deadline of June 2019.
