Water quality improvement plans for catchments of the Great Barrier Reef
Scope: Working with Terrain NRM and NQ Dry Tropics, we have developed and updated the Wet Tropics and Burdekin water quality improvement plans by identifying water quality issues and management options for meeting regional water quality targets.
We have also prepared supporting scientific studies for the Cape York, Wet Tropics, Burdekin, Fitzroy and Burnett Mary regions to inform plan development, including:
Current status and values of coastal and marine assets,
Development of ecologically relevant pollutant load reduction targets, and
Assessment of the relative vulnerability of Great Barrier Reef ecosystems to degraded water quality.
