Catchment Care is a collaboration between Council and landowners to provide solutions to improve water quality. Alongside Central Government, Council runs several programmes that provide financial support to implement these solutions in highest priority catchments, based on long term monitoring of water quality across the region which has identified the waterways that are degraded or at risk of degradation.
Whilst we are targeting high priority catchments first, Council may be able to provide information and guidance for other catchments. All farming communities are encouraged to form catchment groups among their neighbours. If you want to find out more about joining or forming a catchment group, contact
