    over 2 years ago
    River torrens 2 small

    The Natural Resources Management Board is inviting communities to make comment on how the health and environment of the River Torrens can be improved.

    The River Torrens runs through a highly urbanised catchment, flowing from the foothills at Athelstone across the Adelaide plains and out to sea at West Beach.

    The River Torrens Recovery (2014-16) Project aims to improve water quality and biodiversity in this section of river and the coastal waters where it enters the sea.

    To do this, weeds and erosion will be controlled, local native species planted, European Carp removed, traps installed to capture pollutants and water runoff redirected through water sensitive urban design.

    Go here for more information on the project and to find our how you can have your say.

    Consultation closes on 30 June 2015.
