Bremer River Forum

For a number of years the Bremer River in South East Queensland has received an ‘F’ (fail) in the South East Queensland Healthy Waterways Ecosystem Health Monitoring Program (EHMP) Report Card.

Mayor of Ipswich Paul Pisasale is urging people to get involved in reviving the Bremer River by participating in the Bremer River Forum to be held on Thursday 15 April 2010 in Ipswich.

“The poor health of the Bremer River is something that should concern the entire Ipswich community,” he said. “It is up to all of us - community groups and local businesses together with Council - to work to restore the river that is the lifeblood of our native fauna and flora, and a vibrant feature of our cityscape.”

The International WaterCentre, the International WaterForum and Ipswich City Council are hosting the Bremer River Forum. The Forum will facilitate the wide ranging discussion required for the sources of the problem to be understood, and all stakeholders concerned to have the opportunity to participate in the development and delivery of solutions to restore the river to health.

It is estimated that up to 200 delegates representing natural resource practitioners and researchers, government, community and industry representatives will attend the full day event.
