SEQ UTILITIES

As the custodians of South East Queensland’s water supply, Seqwater, Queensland Urban Utilities and Unitywater work in tandem with Healthy Land and Water to improve and protect the region’s catchments and waterways.

Healthy Land and Water helps deliver several on-ground catchment and weed management projects funded by the water utilities that are designed to improve water quality and safeguard South East Queensland’s water supply. Seqwater, Queensland Urban Utilities and Unitywater are crucial partners as we strive to make South East Queensland a healthier place to live.

COUNCIL OF MAYORS (SEQ)

The Council of Mayors (SEQ) was established in September 2005 as an independent political advocacy organisation to represent the interests of South East Queensland, one of the nation’s fastest growing regions. Council of Mayors (SEQ) consists of ten mayors representing the eleven councils that make up the South East Queensland local government region. The organisation uses its united voice and leverage to advocate for a better resourced SEQ with world-standard infrastructure and healthy and sustainable environments.

Council of Mayors (SEQ) works closely with Healthy Land and Water on a number of projects including the Resilient Rivers Initiative, which aims to improve the health of SEQ’s waterways by delivering a coordinated approach to catchment management.

Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation

Healthy Land and Water shares a close bond with the Quandamooka Yoolooburrabee Aboriginal Corporation (QYAC). QYAC was formed in formed in 2011 under the Native Title Act to represent the interests of the Quandamooka people, who have called the lands and waters around Moreton Bay home for tens of thousands of years.

QYAC and Healthy Land and Water work collaboratively on many environmental projects, and the partnership grew stronger in 2015 when the two organisations signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU). The MoU was the first of its kind in between an Indigenous organisation and a natural resource management group in Queensland.

Under the terms of the MoU, QYAC is able to utilise Healthy Land and Water’s project delivery expertise and experience to improve its capacity to conserve and protect the environment. In return, Healthy Land and Water draws on the Quandamooka people’s thousands of years of experience on the land, and builds its capacity to become a culturally competent organisation.
