This year’s grants focus on waterway health

Keeping our waterways clean 

  • Preventing pollution from being carried into waterways, e.g., litter, detergents, chemicals, and pet droppings.
  • Improving our waterways, e.g., removing weeds, improving bushland, creating habitat, reducing pollution, and managing run-off.

Stormwater in a built environment 

  • Water sensitive urban design to help capture, treat and re-use stormwater before it can pollute and degrade our creeks and rivers, e.g., rain gardens.

Safely enjoying our local waterways 

  • Initiatives to help the community enjoy Sydney’s beautiful waterways, e.g., recreation, culture, environment, and safety
