The lake within Unity Park, Kuching, Sarawak, was highly degraded and was therefore slated for remediation by the Sarawakian Premier in 2017. BMT was commissioned to develop the compelte remediation plan of the lake and it catchment.
Outcomes and Benefits
BMT used advanced numerical modelling tools and design expertise to develop a system wide remediation plan for a degraded lake with Unity Park, Kuching, Sarawak. This system included water quality treatment devices, both for in-catchment and in-lake settings. Based on this, BMT worked with local engineers to develop full design drawings for the remediation tender documentation.
Services and Expertise Provided:
BMT conducted a Pilot Study of the College Park Landfill (CPLF), a 30-acre site operated as a municipal landfill from 1954 through 1978. Following closure, a cover was applied, but it was not closed in accordance with regulatory requirements. As landfills are known for their ability to mobilize hazardous substances into surrounding media, the CPLF was added to the U.S. Superfund (CERCLA) program for further evaluation.
The Port of Brisbane Pty Ltd (PBPL) has developed an environmental monitoring program which aims to provide an understanding of the condition, values and stressors operating at and adjacent to the port area.
BMT was commissioned by the Conservation and Environment Protection Authority (CEPA) and Ramu NiCo to conduct an independent environmental audit of operations at the Ramu Nickel Mine in Madang Province, Papua New Guinea.
BMT was commissioned to develop a three dimensional hydrodynamic, sediment transport and water quality model of the Tamar River, Tasmania. The model was extensively calibrated and used by a range of stakeholders to examine the efficacy and impact of a range of management measures.
