Aquatic weed management remains a focus for Council with a variety of high priority weeds including alligator weed and Senegal tea plant infestations in the Karuah and Manning catchments.

These infestations are being monitored and managed where required, under integrated weed management programs.

Council are also strategically managing camphor laurel  throughout the region.

 Camphor laurel is a species that affects water quality through the toxicity in its leaves and outcompetes native species on riverbanks.
