On-site environmental investigations for the McGowan Government’s Spoilbank Marina project in Port Hedland have officially started, the Government of Western Australia reports. 

The State Government has engaged consultants to assist in preparing the environmental impact assessment of the marina project, with O2 Marine to conduct field investigations in Port Hedland from today.

The work includes using a drop camera and side scan sonar to conduct a benthic habitat survey to identify if there are any habitats, such as coral reefs, that could potentially be impacted by construction of the marina.

Sediment samples within the project area will also be collected to investigate sediment quality and to provide input into ongoing dredge plume and sedimentation modelling studies.

The Spoilbank Marina projects includes boat pens, a four-lane boat ramp, two breakwaters and internal revetment walls and an access channel separating marina traffic from shipping activity.
