Environmental Engineers International was commissioned by the Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC) of Commonwealth of Australia to develop a stormwater management plan and design an evaporation pond for the Roebuck Live Export Depot in Broome, Western Australia. EEI applied a risk based approach for the management of the contaminated stormwater runoff from the cattle yard. This approach considered a number of parameters such as the soil, hydrogeology, meteorological factors as well as the pollutant levels in the stormwater generated at the site. The solution that EEI recommended has enabled the client to reduce the capital and operating costs significantly.
The project was completed in early 2016.
