Acid Sulfate Soil Risk Map, Estuaries (DWER-050)

Predicted risk of Acid Sulfate Soil (ASS) materials occurring within shallow soil layers in WA Estuaries (not covered by other Department of Environment ASS risk datasets) that could be disturbed by normal land development activities (drainage, excavations, dewatering). This map was developed to assist planners in assessing whether development applications require additional conditions for developments of sites where there is a risk disturbing or draining ASS/PASS. No distinction is made between potential and actual sites since the risk for further environmental degradation from disturbance or drainage is similar. For further information phone the Contaminated Sites hotline 1300 762 982.

This dataset was formally known as Acid Sulfate Soil Risk Map, Estuaries (DER-008)
