Since 2011, Terrain has coordinated and managed an industry-led collective initiative to investigate pollutant loads in the Herbert River catchment. The project includes monitoring of pesticide, nutrient and sediment contributions from various land uses (including urban and protected estate) across 16 sites. The data generated from this program also supports the Paddock to Reef Monitoring and Modelling Program and has links to Reef Plan actions.

The project supports industry, NRM managers and government to address specific water quality issues within the catchment. Five organisations have contributed funds to the project totaling over $250,000 pa.

  • Over 1,100 water quality samples collected
  • Samples from 16 sites analysed in the past 2 years for sediments, nutrients and pesticides
  • 15 additional partners from a range of sectors provided in-kind support
  • Targeted industry extension and investment priorities for Water Quality Improvement Plans, Wet Tropics NRM Plan and Reef Plan 3
