Design Your Creek Week

Ipswich City Council

Council is seeking to return Small Creek to a meandering natural stream rather than the straight concrete channel it is today. As well as clean water and habitat for wildlife, the new Small Creek will allow for better path and bikeway connections and the opportunity for the community to enjoy nature in their neighbourhood. Council is inviting all interested parties to share their ideas at Design Your Creek Week.

Project Stage - Current

Seeking input to a world wide study on the state of reuse of urban recycled water in agriculture. If you're involved with the agricultural use of recycled water, please get in touch to discuss your experiences or contribute to a quick online survey.
