Julia Creek Sewage Treatment Plant Environmental Authority Amendment
Julia Creek, Queensland
Under the Environmental Protection Act 1994 (Queensland), McKinlay Shire Council (Council) were required to apply for an amendment to their Environmental Authority (EA) to authorise the operation of the Julia Creek Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) on an additional lot parcel.
SLR were engaged to prepare and submit the EA amendment application to include supporting technical and operational documentation whilst engaging with the regulator to ensure preferable conditioning and outcomes were achieved. Council were granted the amended EA, enabling them to continue operating the STP in accordance with Queensland’s environmental framework. In addition, SLR negotiated with the regulator to deliver a more modern and streamlined EA, reducing the administrative burden on Council.
