From July-December 2014, six Roundtables gathered information and reported back to the Stakeholder Working Group (SWG).
The Water Quality and Catchments Roundtable's aimed to
- identify levels of contaminants, nutrients, pathogens and sedimentation flowing into the Gulf from land
- impact on gulf ecology
- impact on users
This Roundtable's findings presented to the SWG can be viewed below. Please sign up for our monthly newsletters to stay in the loop.
