Dredge Management Plan

Flinders Ports developed an EPA approved Dredge Management Plan (DMP) which aligns with licence conditions and Native Vegetation Clearance permit.

The DMP aims to guide the dredge methodology, and management of potential environmental risks associated with dredging for this project, including:

  • Dredging
  • Vessel movement
  • Dredged material placement
  • Vessel management (e.g. bunkering, ballast water exchange)
  • Biosecurity

The EPA, PIRSA, DEW and the South Australian Research and Development Institute have worked closely with Flinders Ports to develop a dredge methodology that minimises impacts to the marine environment.  The DMP was approved by the EPA on 16 May 2019.

The final DMP is available to download on the Resources page.
