We asked

Public comment was invited on the referral to help the EPA determine the appropriate level of assessment.

You said

There were no comments on this referral.

We did

The EPA considers that the proposal is unlikely to have a significant effect on the environment and does not warrant formal assessment. Public advice was provided.


The Southern Ports Authority proposes to construct a 230m rock revetment wall and undertake sand renourishment along eastern Koombana Beach, Bunbury.  The revetment wall will provide erosion protection to the Ports Lease Area, while sand renourishment will reduce the erosion threat to the foreshore infrastructure located to the west. 

What happens next

Following the seven day public comment period and consideration of any comments received, the EPA will decide whether or not this proposal requires environmental impact assessment and, if so, what level of assessment will be applied.

The Chairman's decisions on level of assessment are released each Monday on the EPA's website.
