Calvert to Kagaru EIS summary of findings
A draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) has been prepared for the Calvert to Kagaru Project. The EIS describes the Project, considers potential environmental, social and economic impacts of the Project, and identifies measures to avoid, minimise and mitigate these impacts.
