River Aware Neighbourhood Campaign

We were thrilled to launch our River Aware neighbourhood campaign recently. It was great to chat with so many local residents about some of the things they do on their street to help protect our waterways as well as our plan to make the Parramatta River swimmable again.

Early results from our survey show that less than half of those surveyed know where their household waste water goes, highlighting the need for more education around stormwater runoff and its impact on waterway health.

A huge thank you to Riverkeeper Ambassador Kellie Darley from ParraParents – Parramatta District Parents, Simon Webster from tscudo, Councillor Nick Yap and Petrina Nelson  from City of Canada Bay, Diver Dave’s Ocean Adventures and Wolfpack Coffee Roasters for all their support.
