GLADSTONE Ports Corporationâ€™s Western Basin Dredging and Disposal Project (WBDDP) held a community information stall at the Calliope Markets last Sunday.
The WBDDP stall had information about environmental conditions, water quality, seagrass and dredging in the Gladstone harbour.
Gladstone Ports Corporationâ€™s (GPC) media advisor Lee McIvor said the information stall was set-up for local people to ask questions and get the key facts about the dredging project.
â€śWBDDP environmental scientists were at the information stall and discussed with the public the environmental conditions and mitigations of the project,â€ť Ms McIvor said.
â€śMany people collected information about the project and asked a number of questions where we were more than happy to answer them.â€ť
GPC CEO Leo Zussino said the WBDDP information stall is just one example of how the project is open and accountable to the public.
â€śGPC is committed to carrying out the dredging project with respect for the local community,â€ť Mr Zussino said.
â€śThat is why I encourage the community to ask questions and get the facts about the project.â€ť
The next WBDDP information market stall will be held at BAM in Tannum Sands on 2 June.
