Through council’s ongoing partnership with Healthy Land and Water, comprehensive water quality monitoring and modelling continues throughout the region’s waterways.
The monitoring of Pumicestone Passage, Mooloolah River, Maroochy River and Upper Stanley River catchments determines condition grades and sets long-term targets to improve our catchments.
Council’s partnership with Healthy Land and Water also supports the Healthy Waterplay Program. This initiative assesses water quality to ensure our waterways are clean and safe for recreational use. Assessment of microbial water quality enables the community to make informed decisions about waterway recreation.
