[Extract] The Water Quality Improvement Plans (WQIPs) for the catchments of Great Barrier Reef (GBR) aim to reduce the amount of nutrients, sediments and pesticides reaching the marine receiving waters of the Great Barrier Reef lagoon as part of the Reef Water Quality Protection Plan (Reef Plan). WQIPs are being developed for several of the GBR catchments including the Douglas Shire (Mossman and Daintree catchments), Barron, Tully/Murray, Burdekin, Mackay Whitsunday and Burnett Baffle catchments. Regional water quality planning in the Fitzroy region is being incorporated into the Regional NRM Plan. As part of the WQIP process, monitoring and modelling strategies need to be developed to ensure that the sources of pollutants can be identified and quantified. Once the WQIP is implemented, the water quality benefits of remedial works also need to be monitored and modelled.
