Positive results for Moreton Bay waterways

Keeping our natural resources in the best condition possible should be a major part of our day-to-day lives, so the latest news from the 2014 Healthy Waterways Report Card is exciting for those living in Burpengary real estate

This report highlights the general health of waterways across the nation and offers insight as to whether they have improved or declined in quality over the last year. However, Moreton Bay saw some stunning results, with Deception Bay recording the largest increase in quality over the entire south east Queensland region. 

Moreton Bay mayor Allan Sutherland said the health of the surrounding bays was beginning to improve following damages caused by particularly stormy weather over the last few years. He went on to say the efforts of local people were the backbone of creating a strong, sustainable natural habitat for the state. 

"Moreton Bay Region is home to thousands of volunteers who worked tirelessly across the region. Hundreds of people are involved in their local bush care and environment groups, planting and rehabilitating river and stream banks," said Mayor Sutherland in a 29 October statement.
