Share your views about waterways in our region and go into the $5000 prize draw
What goes down the drains at your house? Do you walk, swim, bike ride, or spend time with family around our region’s lakes, rivers and wetlands? What do you think of the quality of water in the lakes, rivers and wetlands you spend time around?
University of Canberra researchers are asking residents of the Australian Capital Territory, Queanbeyan, Yass, Cooma-Monaro and Palerang to take part in an online survey that asks your views about water quality and local waterways, and the things you do that can affect water quality.
Do the survey at http://www.betterwater.net.au
The survey will inform design of strategies to improve water quality and to maintain and enhance the social benefits of waterways.
The survey will take around 15 minutes to complete. If you complete the survey by August 14th, you can enter the prize draw: first prize is a $1,000 gift card, with 8 runner-up $500 gift cards.
The study is being undertaken by researchers at the Institute for Applied Ecology of the University of Canberra. It is funded by two initiatives: the ACT Basin Priority Project, which seeks to improve the quality of water flowing from urban and rural areas into catchments within and outside the ACT, and the ACT and Region Catchment Management Coordination Group.
