$150,000 for Enoggera Creek restoration project

The upper reaches of Enoggera Creek will be restored as part of a $150,000 project funded by the Queensland Government.

Member for Ashgrove Campbell Newman said the project would be delivered as part of the Queensland Regional Natural Resources Management Investment Program.

“Enoggera Creek suffered significant damage during the January 2013 floods, having also been impacted by the spread of weeds, erosion and litter,” Mr Newman said.

“Project managers SEQ Catchments will work with the Ashgrove Golf Club, Brisbane City Council and local community group, Save Our Waterways Now, to stabilise and remediate the damage.

“The project will focus on increasing the creek’s resilience to future flooding and strengthening the banks to protect infrastructure at the golf club.

“The creek’s biodiversity and fish habitat will also be improved along with corridor linkages.”

Minister for Natural Resources and Mines Andrew Cripps said the Enoggera Creek restoration project was one of six state strategic projects to improve water quality for South-East Queensland waterways.

“More than $1 million will be invested in these projects to restore creeks and improve water quality and local ecosystems, and will be completed by mid-2015,” Mr Cripps said.

“This funding delivers on the Newman Government’s commitment to improve our natural resources while building a four pillar economy.

“We support the productive and responsible use of natural resources, something that was ignored by Labor.”

SEQ Catchments Chief Executive Officer Simon Warner welcomed the funding which would help improve Enoggera Creek’s health.

“This funding demonstrates the commitment of the Queensland Government to make significant investment in the local communities for the restoration of our local creeks,” Mr Warner said.

“At Enoggera Creek we hope to control erosion, get rid of the weeds and restore the creek to a healthy, resilient and biodiverse area.”

“Ashgrove Golf Club is extremely keen to partner with SEQ Catchments and has indicated a willingness to undertake further investment and maintenance of the creek after the project has been completed.”
