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 community.
Healthy Waterways works to understand and communicate the condition of the waterways to drive and influence future targets, policy and actions. We monitor and report on waterway health, educate on the value of our waterways and support reforms to policy and planning where it will benefit our waterways and community.
We all have a role to play in protecting our waterways to safeguard the future of our environment, economy and community. Get involved with Healthy Waterways today and together, we can make a difference.
