Council implements projects to protect and improve the environmental condition of natural waterways throughout the Shire.

The types of projects undertaken range from the preparation of management plans to water quality monitoring and large scale erosion control and revegetation works.

Tweed River Report

Council produces an annual water quality report card for the Tweed’s waterways, including estuaries, catchment and coastal creeks. The report card rates the quality of waterways across the Shire and the projects that Council and the community implement to manage it.

Tweed River Estuary Management Plan

The Tweed River Estuary is the tidal section of the river, a 35km stretch between the Bray Park Weir at Murwillumbah and the river mouth at Tweed Heads.

Council has been working on a new management plan for the Tweed River Estuary since 2016.

The Tweed River Estuary Management Plan will set the focus and provide recommendations for management of the Tweed River for 10 years, from 2020 – 2030.

The purpose of the Plan is to determine actions that can be implemented by Council, NSW Government agencies and the community to achieve the right balance between the many different uses and to protect nature, scenic and recreational values, livelihoods and cultural practices.

The plan is on public exhibition until 31 October 2019 and Council is seeking community feedback, including suggestions of how the plan could be improved to better manage the Tweed River, now and into the future.
