Healthy Waterways Report Card launch reveals waterway health
The Report Card, which presents ‘A to F’ waterway health grades, was released at four launch events across the region, following an intensive 12-month Ecosystem Health Monitoring Program coordinated by Healthy Waterways.
The 2011 Report Card results provide insight into the health of our waterways and Moreton Bay, using data collected before and after the January 2011 flood. Most regions in South East Queensland experienced higher than average rainfall from July 2010 through to March 2011. Intense rainfall during December and January, especially in the northern and western catchments, led to the largest regional flood event since 1974.For more information visit http://www.healthywaterways.org/inner.aspx?pageid=145
