Darling Downs Power Station Stage 2 Ecological Assessment

The scope of the project was to undertake a Regional Ecosystem, Matters of National Environmental Significance and Matters of State Environmental Significance assessments of the site following a desktop assessment.

The results of the field assessment informed the production of an Ecological Assessment Report as well as a Protected Plants Impact Management Plan.

Challenges

Addition of threatened flora survey to field work, which was not accounted for in the original scope.

Innovation

E2M’s expertise in threatened plant species identification ensured that the survey was completed thoroughly and all the threatened species communities that were previously mapped in the area were captured. By utilising advanced GPS technology and innovative data capture methodology, the team were able to map the high risk areas across the project area with the highest possible degree of accuracy and efficiency.

Outcomes

The E2M field team were able to adapt to last minute project design changes which required additional work in the field. The team were able to deliver on this subsequent workload within the allocated time, therefore completing the task on budget.
