Project scope of work includes: water resource and cropping assessments; agronomy and field studies on soil conditions; concept engineering of Hells Gate Dam, Big Rocks Weir, irrigation infrastructure, power supply, road and associated infrastructure and water delivery to the City of Townsville; ecology and environmental assessment; stakeholder relations; and economic assessments.
TEL CEO Patricia O’Callaghan said TEL was pleased that SMEC was leading the study. “They are a global leader in assessing large-scale infrastructure developments and have a track record stretching all the way back to the original Snowy Mountains Hydro-Electric Scheme,” she said. “The company has had a long association with Townsville and the North Queensland region and did some of the original preliminary studies into Hell’s Gate.
