Ports of Mackay and Abbot Point Sustainable Sediment Management Projects

PCS is currently assisting NQBP with aspects of their Sustainable Sediment Management Projects at the Ports of Mackay and Abbot Point. Key components of the studies include analysing historic bathymetric data to better understand sedimentation, developing a conceptual understanding of the dominant sediment transport processes, undertaking dredge plume dispersion modelling and assessing possible solutions to avoid or reduce sedimentation within the Ports. Findings from the studies will help to inform NQBP’s Long-term Maintenance Dredging Management Plans (LMDMPs) for the Ports. It is a requirement of the Maintenance Dredging Strategy that each Port within the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area develop a LMDMP which is aimed at creating a framework to allow continual improvement in environmental performance.
