Waterways Health Report 2016

Last July, Council mailed a Waterways Health Report showing the health status of 40 local waterways to all ratepayers. If you are a ratepayer, and received the report, we would like to hear from you (Download a copy of the report at right).

Surveys consistently show that people living in the Blue Mountains value clean, healthy waterways. Council regularly tests waterway health across the city, and by presenting these results in a community-friendly way, we hoped to raise awareness of waterway health and to highlight the link between our everyday actions and the health of our creeks.

Please help us make future editions of the report better by answering a few quick questions.
