The Burdekin Water Quality Improvement Plan 2009 aims to reduce the sediment and agricultural chemicals going into creeks, rivers and the ocean.

The Plan is a comprehensive report for landholders and stakeholders interested in water quality in the Burdekin. It looks at the current condition of the region’s 48 sub-catchments and the best management practices for grazing and sugar lands within these.

It also lists targets and priorities such as by 2018, 80% of sugar land has best practice herbicide management.

Burdekin Water Quality Improvement Plan Atlas

Accompanying the Burdekin Water Quality Improvement Plan is an Atlas. It details the six basins and 48 sub-catchments within the dry tropics region and helps landholders find their place within them.

The Atlas summarises the condition of basins and sub-catchments, their values, soil losses, ground cover and soil erosion. It’s useful for landholders and stakeholders interested in water quality. The files in the table below links to segments of the Catchment Atlas that are relevant to you.
