The Treatment Systems in Coastal Catchments Forum was an initiative of the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection. It was held at 400 George Street, Brisbane, 8 July 2016.
The Forum provided an overview of innovative new approaches to treatment systems, including treatment wetlands, floating wetlands, bioreactors, algae treatment and other technologies, which have the potential to reduce nutrients and pesticides from diffuse rural sources in the coastal catchments of Queensland.
