2016-02 Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan - Appendix 5: Coastal and marine water quality guidelines

This appendix presents the vast majority of technical information for the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan such as the suspended sediment, nutrient, and pollution levels of each region, climatic conditions and so on.

2016-02 Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan - Draft for community consultation

The Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan aims to improve the quality of water entering the Great Barrier Reef lagoon from catchments on the east coast of the Cape York Peninsula. These goals are to be achieved through the development of improved land management strategies that ensure sediment, nutrients from agriculture, and pollutants do not make their way into waterways and wetlands along the East Coast. 

The Eastern Water Quality Improvement Plan was funded by the Australian Government in order to help achieve the targets set in the Reef 2050 Long Term Sustainability Plan by informing implementation and investment priorities on the Cape. 

Without the effective implementation of sutainable land use practices and waterquality management planning, the Great Barrier Reef will cease to exist as a natural marvel for future generations.

2016-02 Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan - Appendix 2: Framework for gully management prioritisation in the Normanby Catchment

The second appendice of the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan offers a framework for the prioritisation of management for sub catchments and alluvial gullies in the Normanby Catchment based on rate of errosion and sediment levels.

2016-02 Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan - Appendix 3: Land use change for Cape York NRM region

Appendix 3 for the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan provides information on historical land use changes on the Cape York Peninsula that have caused a direct impact to the quality of water entering and in the Great Barrier Reef lagoon. The predominate changes in land use have been in the fields of pastoralism, agriculture, mining and forestry and thus this appendice focuses on them.

2016-02 Eastern Cape York Water Quality Plan - Appendix 4: Need for a "super gauge" approach for accurate monitoring of suspended sediment and nutrient loads

The fourth appendice of the Eastern Cape York Water Quality Improvement Plan looks at why a new approach to the monitoring of suspended sediment and nutrient levels should be developed and utilised in order to accuratelty model the quality of water entering the Great Barrier Reef lagoon. The appendix looks at the tecnhicalities associated with installing and maintaining multiple super guage sites across eastern Cape York.

2016-01 Non-cracking brown duplex clay soils

This is one of four factsheets which form part of a joint project included in the 2013-2016 Queensland Regional Investment Program. They provide information about the landform, vegetation, grasses, geology, descrpition and characteristics of different soil types. This specific factsheet looks at the aspects of non-cracking brown duplex soils in box flats.

2016-01 Coastal country

This is one of four factsheets which form part of a joint project included in the 2013-2016 Queensland Regional Investment Program. They provide information about the landform, vegetation, grasses, geology, descrpition and characteristics of different soil types. The focus of this factsheet is on coastal soils and the vegetation which is accustomed to these soil types.
