Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee and Seqwater have started work on Upper Tingalpa Creekcare, also known as the Leslie Harrison Dam Source Protection Partnership.
As Leslie Harrison Dam, known locally as Tingalpa Reservoir, provides drinking water to the broader community, Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee (B4C) in partnership with Seqwater, will be working with interested landholders to minimise risks to water quality.
Wayne Cameron, Catchment Manager at Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee shared news related to the Leslie Harrison Dam Source Protection Partnership at the Lord Mayor’s Round Table on Wednesday 23rd August.
The aim of the project is to nurture a thriving and healthy Upper Tingalpa Creek Catchment for landholders, the community and environment.
To achieve this, the program involves identifying and addressing current and potential source water quality hazards, offering practical assistance and promoting behavioural change among landowners/managers. In line with this objective, several private property owners have already joined Year 1 of the scheme.
By participating in the program, landholders can benefit from increased community connections, weed management support, training and workshops and free native plants.
Specific project activities will include:
- Assistance to landholders to manage Cats Claw Creeper
- Promoting sustainable practices across a variety of industrial land uses in Upper Tingalpa Creek Catchment.
- Habitat Connections in Logan – establishing corridors to support wildlife movement and expand Land for Wildlife
- Working with private landholders and council to protect and restore natural areas
- Tailored solutions and education for sustainable land management for equine/horse properties.
We look forward to sharing more news soon.
