Dampier Salt engaged BGER for professional engineering consultancy to conduct a Surface Water Management Order of Magnitude Study (OoM) to identify controls to reduce risks associated with rainfall and cyclone events as much as reasonably practicable. In the study, BGER provided earthworks, hydrology and hydraulic modelling that allowed for optimization flow of stormwater during rainfall events, identification of high-level risks to operation and their corresponding risk mitigation at the Dampier, Port Hedland and Lake MacLeod sites.
