Healthy Land and Water is dedicated to the care of our unique and beautiful land, waterways and biodiversity.


Our Clean Up program collects over 250,000 pieces of litter every year, helping to keep our SEQ waterways clean. 


Over 4,000 landowners have now registered for the Land for Wildlife program, helping to preserve our natural assets. 


More than 900 hectares of land was treated for weed control under our vegetation management programs in 2016.


In 2016, flood resilience solutions were applied to more than 63 kilometres of stream bank, helping to keep our waterways strong. 


Erosion and Sediment Control

Soil erosion on construction and building sites and the subsequent release of sediment run-off is a major threat to the health of our waterways, including the businesses and lifestyles that depend upon them. Improving erosion and sediment control practices and compliance is a practical, equitable and cost-effective strategy to reduce the impacts and costs of sediment upon the waterways and communities within urban areas.
