Australia: Enoggera Creek Restoration Project Gets Financial Injection

Enoggera Creek Restoration Project Gets Financial Injection

The upper reaches of Enoggera Creek will be restored as part of a $150,000 project funded by the Queensland Government.

Member for Ashgrove Campbell Newman said the project would be delivered as part of the Queensland Regional Natural Resources Management Investment Program.

Enoggera Creek suffered significant damage during the January 2013 floods, having also been impacted by the spread of weeds, erosion and litter,” Mr Newman said.

“Project managers SEQ Catchments will work with the Ashgrove Golf Club, Brisbane City Council and local community group, Save Our Waterways Now, to stabilise and remediate the damage.”

Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Andrew Cripps said the Enoggera Creek restoration project was one of six state strategic projects to improve water quality for South-East Queensland waterways.

More than $1 million will be invested in these projects to restore creeks and improve water quality and local ecosystems, and will be completed by mid-2015,” Mr Cripps said.
