Hinchinbrook Shire Council has engaged Jacobs Group (Australia) Pty Ltd to undertake a geotechnical investigation for the Dungeness Channel Dredging Project as well as for the proposed new floating walkway at the Dungeness Boat Launching Facility.
The works will be undertaken between Tuesday 20 February and Saturday 24 February 2018, weather permitting. The investigation will be undertaken on a purpose built shallow water punt fitted with a testing frame which uses a variety of sampling and testing equipment to obtain the test samples and results for engineering interpretation, necessary for the planning and feasibility of the project. The following works are expected to be undertaken:
It is advised that all vessels are required to slow down when in the vicinity of the punt rig and stay at least 20 metres from it when anchored. The punt rig will be marked with a no wash flag to identify the need for other vessels to slow down.
