The proposal is to develop a residue disposal facility at Lot 4580, Panizza Road and upgrade part of Panizza Road, Dardanup.
The proposal comprises a total disturbance area of up to 58 hectares (ha) including 55 ha within Lot 4580 and approximately 3 ha along a 1 kilometre (km) section of Panizza Road. The proposal will comprise the following: up to nine residue disposal areas (RDAs); a lined leachate containment pond; stormwater collection dam; upgraded access road; and other ancillary infrastructure, including internal roads and offices.
The proposal will use water to produce a slurry of the TSR at a production rate of approximately 120,000 cubic metres (m3) per year, this equates to a total of 4,200,000 m of slurry to be deposited within the RDAs over the 45 year life (2019 to 2064) of the proposal.
The proposal is located wholly within the Whicher Scarp at the base of the western slope of the Scarp, approximately 16 km south east of Bunbury. The Swan Bioplan Whicher Scarp proposed Conservation Reserve adjoins the eastern boundary of the proposal location.
