ACT Healthy Waterways is a joint initiative of the Australian and ACT governments to protect and improve long-term water quality in the ACT and the Murrumbidgee River system. The project will reduce the level of nutrients and pollutants entering our lakes and waterways that, in turn, have a significant impact on Australia's iconic Murray-Darling Basin.
