Dredge Plume Modelling Guideline

Guideline on Dredge Plume Modelling for Environmental Impact Assessment

CSIRO and WAMSI released the Guideline on Dredge Plume Modelling for Environmental Impact Assessment that provides current best practice for dredge plume modelling in the context of Australia’s Environmental Impact Assessment processes.

The practical guideline aims to ensure that approaches taken in setting up and executing models are more consistent and improve confidence in impact prediction and hence decision making by environmental regulators, leading to reduced management costs for major dredging programs.

The Guideline on dredge plume modelling takes into consideration the findings of five years of intensive studies through the Western Australian Marine Science Institution’s Dredging Science Node to help predict the intensity and extent of potential impacts on marine habitats from dredge-related pressures.
