The Office of the Co-ordinator-General has invited public comments on draft Terms of Reference (TOR) for the Borumba Dam pumped hydro project.

Queensland Hydro must address these Terms of Reference as part of the environmental approval process for the project.

Planning and environment approvals for the project are necessary from both the Federal and State governments, however last year both agreed that an integrated Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) would be used as the assessment tool for approvals.

The Office of the Co-ordinator-General is co-ordinating the EIS process.

More information, including a copy of the draft TOR, is available on the OCG website

Public comments are open until Thursday, March 28.
