Cape Lambert Rio Tinto CLA Jetty Baseline and Compliance Monitoring
(2019 – 2020)
O2 Marine was subcontracted through Austral Construction Pty Ltd (Austral) to assist RioTinto in obtaining environmental approvals required for the refurbishment of the Cape Lambert CLA Jetty.
O2 Marine undertook baseline and compliance monitoring of benthic communities and water quality, to ensure compliance with the Environmental Management Plan (EMP) and assessment against the existing Marine Environmental Quality Management Plan (MEQMP) Environmental Quality Criteria. Monitoring ensured that populations of corals retained their current distribution and diversity and that water and sediment quality meet ANZECC & ARMCANZ (2000) guidelines.
