Pardoo Irrigated Agriculture Project – Stage 3

Closed 20 Feb 2018

Opened 14 Feb 2018

Overview

Pardoo Beef Corporation Pty Ltd proposes to develop a centre-pivot irrigated feed crop production facility. Centre-pivot irrigation is a method of crop irrigation in which equipment rotates around a pivot and crops are watered with sprinklers.

The proposal is approximately 100km east-northeast of Port Hedland and 365km south west of Broome.

The proposal is for stage 3 and would include a total disturbance of 368 hectares development envelope.

Why We Are Consulting

At this initial stage of the EIA process, comment is simply sought on whether or not the EPA should assess a proposal and, if so, what level of assessment is considered appropriate.

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