Technical Report WRA89053 Viewed at 03:02:00 on 18/02/2010 Page 97 of 139. I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I water for use in maintaming moisture ievels in the c!:lY core of the dam but 'Nhieh does not permanently inundate the Aboriginai Sacred Site Tnyere-Akerte. The report Illcludes a description of the alternative dam including lt5 operation, wd compares it with both "full" wd "empty" d:lm options which were discussed in the EIS. From a technical viewpoint, the "full" d:lm option is still preferred. However. its construction is not possible without consent from Aboriginal Custodian's for the permanent inundation of Tnyere-Akerte. The alternative "partially full" d:lm may therefore be viewed as a compromise which still offers a high levei of flood mitigation but without permanently inundating Tnyere-Akerte.
