NCC: Waterway Restoration

Conduct riparian restoration along waterways, in accordance with priorities identified in the Johnstone River Management Plans.

Why it is important?

Comprehensive planning, consultation and prioritising has already been undertaken during the development of the JRMP, identifying actions which deliver significant outcomes eg. Reducing climate change impacts, improved water quality and reef health, involvement of Traditional Owners and the wider community. Conducting waterway restoration in priority areas identified in the plan will help achieve these outcomes.
