TropWATER-led program wins National Award

Updated: May 29

A TropWATER-led water quality monitoring project has won the Agriculture and Regional Development award at the 34th Banksia National Sustainability Awards.

Under the project, scientists work with growers in the Russell-Mulgrave catchment to monitor water quality and detect runoff ‘hotspots’ at local catchment scales.

The project sees scientists working with growers to understand local water quality processes and find water quality solutions that are relevant to their farms.

Developed through the National Environmental Science Program’s Tropical Water Quality Hub and administered through the Cairns-based Reef and Rainforest Research Centre (RRRC), TropWATER’s Project 25 outstanding success has led to significant further investment and works in the catchment.
