Funds for Coffs Estuary Ecohealth projects

COFFS Harbour City Council will receive $100,000 in State Government funding for two projects to manage, enhance and protect local estuaries.

Member for Coffs Harbour Andrew Fraser and Environment Minister Rob Stokes made the announcement today that the funding has come from this year's round of the Estuary Management Program. 

"Coffs Harbour City Council will receive $50,000 for the Estuary Ecohealth project - an ecosystem monitoring program which assists council to address any issues and monitor trends in ecosystem health over time," Mr Fraser said.

"The council will receive an additional $50,000 to develop a Coastal Zone Management Plan for Arrawarra Creek to help preserve its environmental and cultural values.

"The main issues relating to Arrawarra Creek include bank erosion, entrance management, the management of Aboriginal heritage, and water quality."

Both projects are co-funded by local councils.
