The technologies deployed in the next round of infrastructure will depend on the level of funding and their fit to the suburbs and locations selected for construction of water quality assets.

Innovative public education campaigns that aim to reduce the amount of leaves and grass clippings entering stormwater are also being designed. These will build on the results of a trial of ‘The Leaf Collective’ this past autumn, in ACT Government funded work.

(2) ACT Government will continue to work with Ngunnawal Traditional Custodians to implement the objectives and outcomes identified in the ACT Water Resource Plan. The Environment Planning and Sustainable Development Directorate is currently recruiting a Ngunnawal Water Project Officer to support the integration of Ngunnawal values, knowledge, practices and aspirations into water planning and management, including the development of a cultural water flows program.

(3) Yes, as indicated in the answer to Question (1).

(4) The University of Canberra research team, led by Professor Fiona Dyer, is engaged for some further work on determining the sources of nutrient pollution coming from the Tuggeranong catchment, and on the response of Lake Tuggeranong (particularly blue-green algae) to nutrient inputs. Their research over the past three years has shaped the strategy for Stage 2 of Healthy Waterways.
