Economic evaluation of sediment offsets


NCEconomics , in conjunction with Alluvium Consulting, was engaged by Unitywater to investigate opportunities to partially meet future sewage discharge regulatory requirements via the provision of an approved environmental offset. As part of this assessment, we delivered an economic evaluation of numerous investment options, including potential works under the Queensland Government Nutrient Offsets Policy. The offset options included a series of bank stabilisation projects spread along the Lower Caboolture River.

The results were used to prioritise / optimise the selection of a given site (or sites) and sequencing of stabilization works to meet offset targets.
