Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Act (EPBC) referral now live

As part of the environmental regulatory process, Seqwater has submitted an Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Act (EPBC) referral in relation to the Toowoomba to Warwick Pipeline project. This process is administered by the Australian Government to help protect our unique plants, habitats and animals.

To view the referral, visit https://epbcpublicportal.awe.gov.au/all-referrals/project-referral-summary/?id=0dcdba60-7d4c-ee11-be6f-000d3a7948ab. Or visit https://epbcpublicportal.awe.gov.au/all-referrals/, and search for EPBC number 2023/09644.

Seqwater has taken a very conservative approach within the EPBC referral by assessing the worst-case pipeline footprint, while the final design is confirmed. In other words, the EPBC referral assesses a broader area than is likely to be affected.  Finalisation of the pipeline route is a complex process and is subject to ongoing discussions with Toowoomba Regional Council, Southern Downs Regional Council and landholders, as well as engineering and environmental considerations.

We recognise that projects can have an impact on the environment and therefore we are committed to minimising impacts where possible and demonstrate environmental responsibility by meeting any legislative, regulatory and duty of care requirements.
