Onshore Construction Environmental Monitoring Program

An Onshore Environmental Impact Monitoring Program was developed by the lead onshore construction contractor, JKC, to monitor potential effects on the terrestrial and nearshore environment associated with onshore construction activities at Bladin Point, Northern Territory. The Program included surface water and groundwater, mangrove community health, sediments and bio-indicators, air quality (dust) and airborne noise monitoring. The onshore monitoring program ceased in 2019 following completion of construction activities at Bladin Point.
