Lower Fitzroy River Infrastructure Project - draft environmental impact statement

Closed 31 Aug 2015

Opened 18 Jul 2015


Queensland's Coordinator-General invites you to have your say on the draft environmental impact statement (EIS) for the Lower Fitzroy River Infrastructure project.

Prepared by the Gladstone Area Water Board (GAWB) and SunWater Limited (SunWater), the draft EIS describes the project and its potential environmental impacts, both positive and negative. The draft EIS was prepared in accordance with terms of reference approved by the Coordinator-General.

The Coordinator-General seeks your views on the draft EIS, including the effectiveness of the strategies GAWB and SunWater propose to manage the project's environmental impacts.

The Coordinator-General will consider all properly made submissions and the draft EIS provided by the proponent, before preparing a final evaluation report either approving or refusing the project.



There are a number of different ways to make a submission on this draft EIS.  You only need to lodge your submission using one of these methods.  Replicated responses received through different methods will only be counted as one submission.
