If the government prevents capital dredge spoil being placed inshore at the end of the inlet, shouldn’t they pay for any additional cost of putting the spoil on land?

A:
  • YES. But Ports North draft EIS report stated the total cost for on-land placement would be $365m, which State Treasurer Curtis Pitt said is too expensive.
  • Cost estimates by different engineers suggest the EIS cost is far higher than necessary.
