Description / Abstract: A semi-quantitative risk assessment was undertaken using outputs of the WQPP-DSS for the 2050 scenario and knowledge of current water quality in conjunction with factors such as land use, point source loads, residence times and typical estuarine categories. The 2050 scenario assumed treated wastewater from urban development in the Elizabeth and Blackmore river catchments would be directed to the Palmerston treatment plant and that discharge water quality would be the equivalent to the base scenario. The risk assessment focussed on the possibility of pressure and stressor elevations occurring over a timeframe of 20 to 40 years in attempts to align with the future development (worst case scenario) outputs.
