Review of economic analysis underpinning the proposed Traveston Crossing Dam
Oct 2010The proposed Traveston Crossing Dam is located in South-East Queensland. The proposed Dam was a key feature of the draft South-East Queensland Water Supply Strategy which aimed to provide a secure and sustainable long term water supply to South-East Queensland. Stage 1 of the Dam was expected to deliver up to 70 000 ML per year for urban water supplies.
TheCIE was engaged in 2009 by the Commonwealth Department of Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts to conduct a review of the economic analysis underpinning the proposed Dam. The review considered the overall evaluation framework adopted to rank alternative measures to achieve the water security objectives. The analysis also considered the potential impact of changing climatic conditions on the ranking of alternative measures, including desalination facilities.
