ACT Healthy Waterways is a joint initiative of the ACT and Australian governments to improve the quality of water entering our lakes and waterways and flowing downstream into the Murrumbidgee River system.
The project includes the construction of infrastructure – like wetlands, ponds and rain gardens – to reduce the level of nutrients and pollutants entering our lakes and waterways high up in the catchment where rainwater becomes stormwater.
