Reef Catchments has funded an Impact Assessment post Cyclone Debbie to take stock of the current priority areas for remediation works and enable disaster recovery funding to be obtained. The assessment highlighted a significant level of damage to coastal foreshore areas, and riparian areas and water ways within the region. Reef Catchments was active in exploring options with state agencies and local government to ensure the recovery and restoration of these natural areas is undertaken.
