Technical Guidance - Subterranean fauna survey

The content of this Guidance has not yet been updated to reflect the EPA’s framework for environmental considerations in environmental impact assessment.

This document has been developed to provide guidance on the relevant impact assessment methods where subterranean fauna is likely to be a factor, particularly the standards of survey and type of information required to understand impacts. It differs from previous guidance by introducing the use of surrogates, where survey alone has not provided sufficient evidence to determine distribution.

The content is the same as Environmental Assessment Guideline 12 – Consideration of subterranean fauna in environmental impact assessment in WA, June 2013.
