We primarily use water for dust suppression on construction projects, in the operation of minerals processing plants and for washing down and cleaning different types of equipment.
Minimising or reducing water use and increasing the use of recycled water delivers benefits for the environment and helps to reduce costs when water must be purchased.
Our project EMPs integrate Soil and Water Sub-plans to address water use and conservation.
These EMPs recognise, and are adapted for, the unique conditions of each project and address factors such as the:
- environmental values of the surrounding environment
- potential water requirements and sources
- regulatory commitments and landholder obligations that a particular project must meet.
