Restoring Moreton Bay to health
 Enable images to view In response to its pressing water issues, Moreton Bay Regional Council (MBRC) has become the first Local Government Authority in Queensland to make significant progress with Total Water Cycle Management (TWCM) Planning.

By identifying the unique challenges of the region through the TWCM Plan, the Council hopes to ensure the existing social, environmental and economic values of the region are maintained or enhanced.

To that end, engineering and environmental consultancy BMT WBM, using a suite of modelling tools from eWater including Source for catchments, Urban Developer and music, has worked in partnership with MBRC to develop a TWCM Strategy for the region as a first phase of an overall TWCM Plan.

Work to date so impressed the judges that it won the Excellence in Strategic or Master Planning award in the recent 2011 SIAQ Awards for Excellence. The Award recognises excellence in development of integrated stormwater management plans.

The Queensland Government, under its revised Environmental Protection (Water) Policy 2009 (EPP Water), now requires all Local Government Authorities with a population of more than 25,000 people to develop and implement a TWCM Plan.
