WATER QUALITY SCIENCE FORUM – INNISFAIL
Since 2009 the Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program (P2R) has been looking at changes in contaminant loads and linking on-ground practice changes with water quality and flow data.
It brings the work of many projects together, providing a framework for evaluating and reporting on progress to the 2025 targets in the 2050 Reef Water Quality Improvement Plan.
Yearly water quality science forums provide an opportunity for farmers and extension officers to hear directly from the scientists behind the science, and will include an update on the Scientific Consensus Statement review.
The Innisfail forum is specifically focused on the Johnstone, Tully and Murray Catchements.
The forum is jointly funded by the Australian and Queensland government’s Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program and the Natural Resources Investment Program.
Farmers are invited to attend the in-person forum:
Thursday 12 May at the Australian Sugar Heritage Centre, Mourilyan
8am – 1pm (Tea & coffee from 7:30am; lunch from 1pm)
RSVPs essential by Friday 6 May to email@example.com or 0417 609 681.
