What’s happening in the Finow River Catchment

Good water quality in our rivers, lakes, estuaries and coastal waters is a precious resource. The Local Authority Waters Programme (LAWPRO) works to promote a healthy water environment by identifying water quality issues and finding ways to fix them. This is a new way of working to improve water quality and everyone can play their part.

The Finow River Catchment is one of 190 areas prioritised for focused water quality action by LAWPRO. We will be visiting the catchment this summer and will be working with the public, state agency partners and the agricultural sector to address water quality issues. We encourage local people to get involved in the management of their local water bodies.

Usually, we hold face-to-face meetings with the local community to talk about water quality in their catchment and explain our work, however, to comply with Covid-19 restrictions, this Community Information Meeting will be held via Zoom.

To register for the Zoom Meeting , to be held on Wednesday 7th July 7:30pm, visit: https://bit.ly/3vIv6A1 or Facebook @LAWPROteam.
