The Upper Murrumbidgee Actions for Clean Water (ACWA) Plan was launched at a ceremony on Tuesday 11 September 2012, in Queanbeyan.
The ceremony was conducted by the chair of the Upper Murrumbidgee Catchment Coordinating Committee (UMCCC) Peter Duffy, Acting Chair of the Murrumbidgee CMA Sulari Goonetilleke, ACTEW’s Managing Director Mark Sullivan and ACT Environment & Sustainable Development Minister Simon Corbell.
The ACWA Plan sets out actions needed to improve water quality and reduce turbidity in the upper Murrumbidgee which will benefit the environment and also the water supply of Canberra, Queanbeyan and Cooma.
The Plan is the result of a collaborative venture between the Murrumbidgee CMA, ACT Natural Resource Management Council, UMCCC, Upper Murrumbidgee Waterwatch and ACTEW Water, together with support from the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country Program.
