Aquatic Ecology Forum, ACT

Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra

Ever wondered about the state of 'Rivers, Creeks, Lakes and Ponds' in the ACT?

This was the theme of last week's (11 August 2015) Environment Institute of Australia and New Zealand’s (EIANZ) forum, where Richard Sharp (Senior Consultant I Environment and Infrastructure) with the Company presented one of 16 presentations on this topic.

Covering a broad range of case studies, from the health of the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment and population dynamics of the Murray River Crayfish Euastacus armatus through to an overview of the status of fish in the ACT and impending Basin Priority Project which seeks to improve the long term water quality in the ACT and the Murrumbidgee River System, the presentation's generated great interest and group discussion.

The one-day event continues to attract a large number of professional environmental consultants, the ACT Government’s Environment and Planning Directorate and the National Capital Authority, the ACT Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment, research scientists from CSIRO and the University of Canberra, representatives from the ACT Parks and Conservation Service and the Australian River Restoration Centre, along with community organisations such the Ginninderra Catchment Group, the Molonglo Catchment Group, ACT Frogwatch and ACT Waterwatch.
