We achieved a lot for the river in the last financial year. It has been the first year that we have implemented the Georges Riverkeeper Strategic Plant 2018-2022. Click the button to learn more our about the outcomes, including how much litter we removed from the river and what the River Health Grades were for selected estuary sites along the river.
The Georges Riverkeeper Strategic Plan 2018-2022 was developed by Georges Riverkeeper and member Councils. The Plan outlines Georges Riverkeeper Programs, key objectives and how we will measure our progress.
A liveable river is one where people, plants and animals thrive. It has clean water, rich biodiversity, safe and beautiful outdoor spaces, and recreational activities that everyone can enjoy. It helps to improve people’s health and wellbeing, brings economic benefits and boosts community spirit.
There are many different stakeholders and landowners in the Georges River Catchment who all have a responsibility to manage their land in a way that ensures there is a minimal impact on the river and its ecosystems.
Best practice environmental management for a liveable urban river.
