About the REF
The REF outlines the project’s likely impacts on the environment during construction. As work will be located within an existing operational site and previously disturbed areas, we expect that the work will have minimal impacts to the environment.
The new digesters, dewatering facility and sludge thickening equipment will have no visual impact. The project will have no impact on the Natural Heritage status of Sydney Harbour National Park.
Environmental safeguards will be implemented to minimise any impacts caused by our construction activities. Once operational, we do not expect to cause any significant environmental impact.
During construction, Sydney Water will keep the community informed on progress and let them know if work is likely to impact them.
You can view the REF here from 19 March 2018.
