5.0 Rapid Assessment

Asset works priority

Visibility

Visibility: Examples of high visibility are shopping precincts, landscaped public open space, general high traffic areas.

Catchment

High catchment priority (if able to be determined) includes catchments that outfall directly to the bays, or are upstream of sensitive areas

Treatment

Treatment: High asset priority (if able to be determined) would include an asset that is the lone treatment in a catchment, or performs a significant proportion of treatment within a catchment

Surrounds

Surrounds: Examples of low priority are assets in disturbed areas such as residential streets with ongoing construction that will stymie maintenance efforts

Initial assessment
