Summary

This project will perform aquatic weed control activities within the following areas where Riparian Management Agreements have been established:
Healy’s Lagoon
Ironbark Creek
Horseshoe Lagoon
Didgeridoo Lagoon
Collinson’s Lagoon
Sheepstation Creek
Lilliesmere Lagoon
Kalamia Lagoon
Saltwater Creek.

The project has the potential to assist in minimising the risk of flooding and aims to:
  • provide opportunities for NQ Dry Tropics project staff to participate in the aquatic weed activities
  • support NQ Dry Tropics project staff to develop a mapping and recording tool to assist in the recording and reporting of aquatic weed control effort
  • improve wetland condition and function through the control of aquatic weeds
  • improve wetland health and function including aquatic connectivity for the Riparian Management Agreement areas
  • improve coordination/liaison between Lower Burdekin Water Board and Council in regard to aquatic weed control effort
  • support Council’s efforts in controlling priority pest weed species
  • improve knowledge of operational staff in regard to environmental issues
  • document records of weed management effort for each system to guide and improve future effort.

Burdekin Shire Council must ensure safe systems of work in relation to the project activities are in place.
