Beneficial Use Plan review


  • Scope:

    Contribution to preparation of a beneficial use plan including:

    • Advice on irrigation water quality requirements for sustainable irrigation specific to target soil types
    • Review of risks and critical design parameters.
  • Challenge:

    The client wished to avoid a protracted regulatory approval process for a large-scale project for beneficial-use of coal seam gas water.

  • Solution:

    Verterra was engaged to review the client’s draft beneficial use application for irrigated plantation cropping. Verterra applied a combination of sound scientific rationale and a detailed understanding of the relevant regulatory framework to ensure that the application was both scientifically rigorous and addressed important regulatory requirements necessary to facilitate a smooth approval process.

  • Benefit to Client:

    The project drew on Verterra's experience in regulatory expectations and expertise in irrigated systems to refine a beneficial use plan in preparation for submission to the regulator.
