There is a misconception that most pollution of the Georges River comes from industry. In fact, about 95% of pollution comes from stormwater. Pollutants include litter, sewage, sediment, and other organic and inorganic contaminants.
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.
