NRA has prepared and reviewed Erosion and Sediment Control Plans (ESCPs) for road upgrade and associated infrastructure projects on Cape York Peninsula. NRA has completed numerous environmental studies for the Peninsula Developmental Road over the past 20 years. Recent work specific to soils includes a general risk ESCP for the construction phase of the South of Musgrave and the Archer and Wolverton road upgrade works.
NRA was commissioned to provide advice on the erosion and sediment control (ESC) measures implemented during the refurbishment activities on Lizard Island. NRA recommended best practice ESC measures to control the severity and extent of erosion and sediment transport from the project area and provided a plan for monitoring and maintenance of the ESC measures implemented.
The State of Queensland requested NRA undertake an independent study of potential impacts and mitigation measures associated with irrigating mine affected waters from the Texas Silver Mine. The purpose of the work was to obtain independent advice to minimise the impact of irrigation to aid the evaporation of mine affected waters at the former Texas Silver Mine site without causing additional environmental harm.
