Is Moreton Bay getting better?
The 2010 Ecosystem Health Report Card was launched on 20th October, revealing the current health of South East Queensland's (SEQ) waterways, and whether Moreton Bay is recovering following the high rainfall events in 2009.
The results were released simultaneously at four launch events across the region, following an intensive 12-month aquatic Ecosystem Health Monitoring Program (EHMP) coordinated by the South East Queensland Healthy Waterways Partnership.
The Report Card presents 'A to F' health grades for SEQ's 19 catchments and 18 estuaries, as well as nine zones within Moreton Bay, based on the analysis of data from 135 freshwater and 254 estuarine and marine sites.
