VEC Acid Sulfate Soils Assessment and Management Plan

As part of the Tasmanian Irrigation ‘Scottsdale Irrigation Scheme’, AK Consultants were engaged by the construction contractors (VEC Civil Engineering) to conduct an Acid Sulfate Soil (ASS) Assessment and Management Plan for a number of areas within the pipeline construction corridor which were identified as being at risk of containing potential acid sulphate soils.

This assessment was undertaken in accordance with the Tasmanian Acid Sulfate Soils Management Guidelines (2009) and the Tasmanian Irrigation Acid Sulfate Soil Management Protocol (2014), to ensure that best practice environmental management could be achieved in regard to potential disturbance of acid sulfate material.
