Residents of Burpengary real estate could be familiar with the Total Water Cycle Management Plan, which is currently being implemented in increments across the Morton Bay region. The effects of this will be the creation of a more sustainable system for living, giving key focus to the function of water within the community.

The innovative program has recently earned national recognition, with the Australian Water Association Program Innovation Award being given to the Morton Bay Council for their work towards developing and beginning to implement the water program into the local community.

Deputy Mayor Mike Charlton said the environmental significance and innovation of the council was recognised by the award.

“The Total Water Cycle Management Plan is the first of its kind in South East Queensland and demonstrates Moreton Bay Regional Council’s commitment to a sustainable community, and protecting our natural assets for future generations,” said Mr Charlton in a 12 May statement.

Council’s Strategic Planning spokesperson Mick Gillam said the program provided the framework for balanced growth between the needs of the local environment and identifying strategies to help maintain the health and quality of local waterways.
