You are invited to have your say on draft environmental values and water quality objectives for Queensland waters under the Environmental Protection (Water) Policy (EPP Water).
The Queensland Government has released draft consultation materials (reports, mapping) for Queensland Murray Darling-Bulloo and selected Great Barrier Reef 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 South–east Queensland and Wet Tropics waters, and groundwaters in Reef catchments. 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 the draft consultation materials, view the Ministerial Release.
Submissions close 31 May 2017.
