Restoring the reef
THE Queensland Government recently released the Regulatory Impact Statement for enhancing existing reef regulations for public consultation.
This follows on from the public discussion paper released in March, outlining a number of high-level regulatory proposals to reduce land-based pollutants flowing to waterways and the reef.
Since the release of the discussion paper, it has been confirmed that water quality remains one of the biggest risks to the reef health.
The Queensland Government acknowledges feedback received to date and invites further comments to be made on the RIS until November 3.
