Have Your Say on Goulburn River Plans

Friday 28 January, 2005
  The future management of the Goulburn River between Shepparton and Murchison will be discussed at a public meeting.   The meeting has been convened by the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority to outline the results of a study by Earth Tech investigating issues such as erosion, stock damage, weed invasion, fish passage, water quality and litter along the stretch of river.   The results have been collated in a Waterway Health Activity Plan that will be outlined at the meeting.   Project Manager, Sue Botting, of Goulburn Broken CMA said the meeting would give community members the chance to comment on recommendations in the Plan before they were finalised.   She said the recommendations would form the basis for investment and works for this stretch of the Goulburn by the Goulburn Broken CMA and its partners.   Sue Botting urged community members to take the chance to have input into future management of the heritage river. She said community support was important as most of the river frontage along the river between Shepparton and Murchison was managed by private landowners.   The Goulburn Broken CMA has received funding from the Victorian Government to undertaken the activity plan.   The public meeting will be held on Wednesday February 16, at 7pm, at the Murchison Community Hall. For more information telephone Sue Botting at the Goulburn Broken CMA on (03) 58 222288.   Release ends
