The Government is hosting information sessions for community questions to be answered by a panel of experts from ARPANSA, ANSTO and the Department. The communities of Hawker, Quorn and Kimba are invited to come along to ask their final questions about the proposed Facility.
Community members are invited to pre-submit questions via firstname.lastname@example.org or questions will be accepted on the night be the moderator.

The Government is placing a strong emphasis on community consultation and engagement throughout each stage of the project.
Because of this the department will work closely with communities that agree to proceed to the next stage of the process to develop a detailed project proposal as well as the structure for the community benefits measures.
Once the facility is constructed, its ongoing operation will involve community representation on the facility management board and regular engagement through open days. To ensure full public transparency the site will release all environmental and other monitoring data. It is also the intention that the site and its employees work with the community in ways that see them become a valued part of the local community.
The department has locally-based Community Liaison Officers in both Hawker and Kimba. Office hours are generally 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, however as staff members regularly travel throughout the region, it's highly recommended you contact us by phone or email to book an appointment.
The office in Hawker is located at:
72 Cradock Rd
Hawker SA 5434
The office in Kimba is located at:
49 High St
Kimba SA 5641
