Healthy waterways for a healthy economy...
The waterways of South East Queensland are an integral part of our lifestyle and economy. With a rapidly growing population and increasingly unpredictable climate, our waterways are under increasing pressure from threats such as soil erosion, stormwater run-off, litter and land clearing.
Healthy Waterways is an independent, not-for-profit organisation working to protect and improve our waterways. We have a renowned collaborative model consisting of strong community, industry, government and research partnerships working together to achieve healthier waterways that underpin a healthy economy and community.
A new era for catchment management...
A new era for the management of South East Queensland’s land and waterways has begun, with the official formation of Healthy Waterways and Catchments. This new organisation combines Healthy Waterways and SEQ Catchments, whose members voted in the change on 28 June 2016.
This new organisation has been formed as a community-focused and science-based waterway and natural asset management organisation, which will improve the coordination and implementation of best practice catchment management.
Healthy Waterways and SEQ Catchments will continue to operate under their existing brands while we work through the transition.
