12021: Implementing the Vasse Wonnerup Geographe Bay Water Quality Improvement Plan – Stage 2
This project will build on successful partnerships with the Geographe Catchment Council, City of Busselton and the South West Catchments Council to reduce nutrients entering Geographe bay and wetlands from urban areas.
Key aims of the project are to:
- retrofit water-sensitive urban design elements into two existing stormwater systems within the Geographe catchment
- build the capacity of local governments and developers to implement water-sensitive urban design in new developments
- continue annual macrophyte monitoring in the Vasse Wonnerup Wetlands
- continue catchment water quality monitoring
Extensive and ongoing monitoring and modelling of nutrient dynamics throughout the catchment will help inform management actions and assess the success of nutrient reduction actions.
