PCA Ground Engineering engaged Blue Earth Environmental in late 2020 to undertake Aquatic Biota Salvage works at Sideling Creek Dam. Chris and his guys were of the highest quality. PCA’s end client Seqwater and PCA, were wrapped in their overall performance. I highly recommend Blue Earth Environmental.

Chris from Blue Earth Environmental is very professional, knowledgeable, technically capable and a master problem solver. Chris has helped to successfully collect habitat, water quality and biological data from remote and often difficult to access sites. He puts great effort in to research and planning prior to deployment and is meticulous with field aquatic flora and fauna ID.

Chris has great skill in launching and retrieving the boat electrofisher in difficult locations including on sandy and muddy substrates and on steep gradients. Chris does this with safety in mind, carefully planning every step of the launch and retrieval. Out on the water, Chris is highly adept at manoeuvring the boat electrofisher particularly at difficult sites filled with trees and debris and through water that is shallow or fast flowing to locate habitats ideal for capturing aquatic fauna. The price for these services and his extensive experience is great value and he will often attempt to find efficiencies in price where possible. Chris is a pleasure to work with and I am always very happy with the results he produces. I would highly recommend Blue Earth Environmental.

Blue Earth Environmental Pty Ltd were a key part of the team, led by NGH Pty Ltd, who assessed the ecological values of a 3,250 ha area which had recently come into the Sunshine Coast urban footprint. Together, we proposed an ‘environmental network’ which will be enhanced and protected in order to sustain biodiversity as the site is developed over the next decade and into the future. Blue Earth Environmental completed aquatic ecology surveys and associated reporting, as well as taking part in a series of workshops with other disciplines to identify criteria for protected areas.

Sunshine Coast Council, the client, commended the project team for their contribution to a Structure Plan that is considered extremely robust and provides a strong foundation to move forward.

Blue Earth Environmental were fantastic to work with, assisting us in the delivery of an aquatic ecological assessment required for an environmental approval. Their expertise ensured that the methodology was scoped to the satisfaction of both our clients’ needs and that of the environmental approval regulator. While the results were technically robust and the reporting to a high scientific standard, we especially appreciated their assistance in liaising amongst the project team, clearly explaining the scientific findings in simple, non-specialist terms.
