Aquatic Weed and Riparian Management Agreements
Riparian Management Agreements
Landholders living near or adjacent to waterways in the Burdekin are able to participate in a proactive program called Riparian Management Agreements (RMA’s). Landholders and Burdekin Shire Council both contribute money towards the agreement which allows Pest Management Officers the opportunity to manage and maintain certain key areas of water ways for aquatic weeds.
