This community forum is an opportunity for Southern Gulf NRM members and others with an interest in the proposal for a merger to meet with the Southern Gulf NRM Chairperson, Megan Munchenberg, and CEO, Andrew Maclean to discuss the proposal in person.

The North and Far North Queensland Monsoon Trough affected over half of Queensland during 25 January to 14 February 2019, causing widespread flooding and damage. This resulted in a number of environmental impacts to catchments, including gully erosion, streambank retreat, and sedimentation.
This program aims to stabilise riparian zones and streambanks and enhance the resilience of Queensland waterways to future disaster events. The present stage focuses on reconnaissance and data collection to assess environmental impacts and identify streambank erosion sites that may be eligible for remediation funding under the jointly funding Queensland and Australian Government Disaster Recovery Funding Arrangements (DRFA) Category D Environmental Recovery Package.
If your property experienced riparian damage, including but not limited to gully erosion, streambank retreat and sedimentation, please submit a relevant application to undergo further assessment.
