Have your say on draft environmental values and water quality objectives for eastern Cape York waters

March 21, 2017

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 eastern Cape York fresh, estuarine and coastal/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 consultation materials are derived from local water quality information where available, including inputs to the eastern Cape York water quality improvement plan.

Draft information is also being released for other Queensland regions. 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.
