Have your say on draft environmental values and water quality objectives
You are invited to have your say on draft environmental values and water quality objectives for the Fitzroy Basin, Keppel Bay and surrounding marine waters under the Environmental Protection (Water) Policy (EPP Water).
The Queensland Government has released draft consultation materials (reports, mapping) for the Fitzroy Basin, Keppel Bay and marine waters. These and an online survey/submission form are available from the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP) website and via the Get Involved website.
The updated draft water quality objectives are derived from local water quality information where available.
Further information will be released when available for groundwaters, refer to the EHP website for more details.
All feedback will be considered in the finalisation process. Final materials may (pending Government approval) be included in schedule 1 of the EPP Water.
For more information on environmental values, water quality objectives and the draft consultation materials view the Ministerial Release.
Submissions close 30 June 2017.
