An Albanese Labor Government will invest in a vital restoration project to improve the water quality and biodiversity of our Lake Macquarie waterways.
This $250,000 commitment is from Labor’s Urban Rivers and Catchments Program and will help Lake Macquarie City Council to undertake vital works to revitalise and maintain the important waterways of Dora Creek, Cockle Creek and Slatey Creek.
Funded works in these waterways would include weed management, community engagement to change detrimental behaviours, increasing vegetation through natural vegetation or planting, potential creek bank stabilisation and further ongoing maintenance.
Labor’s previously announced urban rivers and catchments investment will fund projects across the country to restore urban river systems, catchments and wetlands.
Fixing up waterways and the catchment areas around them will improve water quality, help improve habitat for animals and deliver positive outcomes for nature and communities.
Only a Labor Government will restore Australia’s urban rivers and catchments, including our Lake Macquarie waterways.
