Healthy waterways and catchments are vital systems that keep our local towns and communities thriving, and ensure a healthy and vibrant future.
So how do we know how our waterways are faring? Have things improved? Where do we need to do more work?
Every year, MidCoast Council teams with experts from the Office of Environment and Heritage to investigate our local waterways. The result is the MidCoast Waterway and Catchment Report Card.
The 2017 Report Card will be released on Tuesday, 5 December 2017. You are invited to the launch! Results will be revealed at 9am in the Taree Council Chambers, followed by a relaxed and informative cruise on the Manning River Estuary. Scroll down to learn more and RSVP.
Watch out for the videos being launched here throughout November which feature our 'local legends' looking after our waterways - beef farmer Peter Longworth, dairy farmer Julian Biega and oyster farmer Ian Crisp.
