Reply To: Wash Down Station Design considerations

Hey Shaun,

This is a great resource, well done for locating it. In that resource there is the section below:
“1.1 General Biosecurity Obligation
Under Queensland’s Biosecurity Act 2014, all persons have an obligation to take reasonable and practical measures to prevent or minimise the biosecurity risks associated with their activities or dealings with the carriers of invasive plants.”

The operative word here is reasonable and practical. Given that the Peninsula is remote, and building and maintaining these assets is a major consideration, I’d suggest reviewing this document and using it as the ‘best practice’ model, and from there, deciding what is practically achievable given the constraints on country. You will have to make some judgement calls on what the minimum viable product is here.

Great question and resource!
