Catchment plan on exhibition

The draft catchment management plan for the Wilsons River is now on public display for review and comment. 

 This plan was funded by Rous Water as a part of its development of the Wilsons River Source – this region’s new source of ‘raw’ drinking water.

Although the plan was initiated by Rous Water, the process of its development involved independent scientific investigation and community consultation, and has built upon the considerable amount of work previously done in the region.

The draft plan, and all background scientific studies, can also be accessed and downloaded from www.wilsonsriver.wikispaces.com along with an electronic submission form.

Rous Water welcomes community comments and feedback on the plan, and so printed submission forms are also available that need to be returned to Rous Water by Friday July 17.

For more information about how to access the plan and prepare a submission, you can send an email to wilsonsriver@sustainablefutures.com.au
