Background

Have Your Say on how you value and use your local waterways in CBCity including the Cooks River, Duck River, Georges River, Salt Pan Creek and Wolli Creek.

In 2017, the NSW Government consulted with stakeholders and community groups as part of developing the Marine Estate Management Strategy 2018–2028.They identified a need to ensure our community’s environmental values and uses of our coastal waterways reflect changing views and land uses.

The NSW Government wants to know how you use local waterways and why they are valuable for your quality of life. All members of the community are encouraged to have their say. This will help with work on the NSW Water Quality Objectives to protect and maintain our waterways in line with the way you currently use them or plan to use them in the future. These uses may include kayaking, boating, fishing, swimming, walking by your waterway or just knowing they are there for plants and animals.

By taking part you could win 1 of 10 NSW National Parks and Wildlife annual Multi-Parks Passes. Please make sure you answer all questions in the survey and review the Terms and Conditions.

The survey includes questions such as:

  • which waterways in your local area are important to you
  • what do you currently enjoy using your local waterways for – walking, picnicking, swimming, boating, and/or fishing
  • how healthy are your local waterways and is this important to you
  • how often do you visit your local waterways
  • are there any conflicting uses of waterways in your local area?

The survey should take 7 minutes to complete and can be completed for multiple waterways in your area.

The NSW Government will post regular updates of the survey and its outcomes on their Water quality webpages.
