WetlandUpdate August 2016
Lake Eyre and Bulloo Basins Aquatic Conservation Assessment
Aquatic Conservation Assessments (ACAs) are non-social and non-economic and designed with the sole intent of identifying conservation values of wetlands at a user-defined scale.
Find out more about accessing the data and reports on the get mapping help page.
The riverine and non-riverine data may also be accessed through WetlandMaps.
Environmental reports online provide information on specific environmental values, by location.
Groundwater Dependent Ecosystem Mapping Report: Comet, Dawson and Mackenzie drainage sub-basins
This report documents the methods, conceptual understanding and technical outputs developed during the delivery of the GDE mapping project for the Comet, Dawson and Mackenzie River drainage sub-basins.
Queensland reservoirs mapping
Queensland reservoirs mapping has been added to WetlandMaps. This dataset displays the reservoirs (man-made water bodies surrounded by land where the water is used for drinking, irrigation or watering of stock and or horticulture) covering the State of Queensland. This dataset shows reservoirs greater than 625 sq metres at full supply level.
Treatment systems in coastal catchments
This report provides a summary of the speakers’ presentations, questions and answers from the Treatment Systems in Coastal Catchments Forum held on 8th July 2016.
The Forum provided an overview of innovative new approaches to treatment systems, including constructed 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.
