Water—Cotter Dam

Statement by minister

MR BARR (Molonglo—Deputy Chief Minister, Treasurer, Minister for Economic Development and Minister for Tourism, Sport and Recreation) (12.00): Pursuant to a resolution passed by the Assembly on 21 March 2012, I table information to fulfil part (2)(a) of the resolution on the enlarged Cotter Dam project.

Today I table two documents: firstly, the board paper prepared on 28 February 2012 for the Actew board meeting of 4 March 2012, which was provided to the voting shareholders on 1 March 2012. Secondly, I table the estimated revised schedule and cost information in the form of a slide presentation presented to the Actew board on 4 March 2012 and provided to the voting shareholders on 5 March 2012.

I table the following papers:

Water Security Major Projects—Enlarged Cotter Dam Project—

ACTEW Corporation Limited—Meeting No 203—Information paper, dated 4 March 2012.

Cost and Schedule—Presentation to ACTEW Board—Sunday 4 March.

The first document does not contain the revised cost or schedule details, citing that there was a further meeting to occur with the alliance management group on 1 March 2012 to review the independent estimator’s findings. It was, in effect, an indicator that the board would need to consider and discuss the project after the alliance had had a chance to discuss the review.

The second document is a presentation which provides an update on the review of the budget and schedule for the enlarged Cotter Dam and was first presented to the Actew board on 4 March 2012.
