HAWKESBURY-NEPEAN CATCHMENT COMMUNITY REFERENCE GROUPS
Written on the 19 January 2018 by Kevin Conolly
Member for Riverstone Kevin Conolly is pleased to announce that Sydney Water is establishing 10 Community Reference Groups across the Hawkesbury-Nepean Catchment area and is inviting interested people in the community to join. Local community input will help Sydney Water better understand community values for the Catchment and discuss solutions for improving waterway health.
If you are an active user of the waterways or involved in conservation, Sydney Water encourages you to submit a nomination form and share your valuable experiences.
"This is a great opportunity to have your say on important matters in our local community and I encourage my constituents to fill out a nomination form and get involved" said Mr Conolly.
The groups will be based in Schofields, Rouse Hill as well as Berowra, Oran Park, Penrith, Picton, Richmond, West Camden, St Marys and South Maroota. There will be a total of three workshops that will kick off in February 2018 and finish in April 2018.
Sydney Water's Project Director for the Hawkesbury-Nepean, Iain Fairbairn said, "I look forward to meeting our customers at the workshops and hearing their thoughts, expertise and knowledge of the area. I would really like to understand what is important to them."
As a volunteer member of the group you'll learn more about the management of the Hawkesbury-Nepean waterways, share your thoughts, issues and concerns about the Catchment, and work with Sydney Water to explore ways to improve waterway health.
