Three year partnership extended with Healthy Land and Water

Published:

An extended three year partnership with Healthy Land and Water will help to preserve and potentially improve on the Noosa River’s A minus rating

The $74,000 over three years will deliver river catchment monitoring and an annual Report Card to identify the pressures facing the waterway.

Deputy Mayor Cr Frank Wilkie said the program had provided valuable data on the river’s health since monitoring began in 2001.

“This partnership with Healthy Land and Water is pivotal to the way we manage the catchment and helps us understand and protect the waterway for future generations.”

Healthy Land and Water is an independent organisation, which works with government, utilities, traditional owners and private industry to protect South East Queensland’s natural environment.

CEO Julie McLellan said the organisation valued its partnership with Noosa Council to ensure the health and resilience of the iconic Noosa waterway.

“Noosa Council continues to be a leader in environmental management and this ongoing partnership will allow our scientists to monitor the immense riparian and wetland habitats of the Noosa River and assist in ensuring the health of the Noosa waterways.”

Ms McLellan said the Ecosystem Health Monitoring Project provides critical data and monitor trends that are analysed to form the annual Report Card.

Cr Wilkie said Council had a strong focus on protecting and improving the river’s health.

“This is a unique and vital monitoring program and we are fortunate to have it,” he said.
