Department of Water, Hydroconcept
2014

Hydroconcept completed hydrogeology investigations to define potential groundwater sources in the North West Hamersley palaeochannels and palaeovalleys. WISE completed conceptual design of 5 bulk water scheme options with the objectives of servicing:

  •  Pilbara Cities population projections (Karratha & surrounds, Onslow)
  •  Economic diversification strategy and development which supports the population forecasts (minerals, agriculture, industrial estate, ports)

Design and cost estimation to ± 50% was completed for Water Corporation source options and industrial utility development.
