Revitalising Geographe Waterways

Revitalising Geographe Waterways aims to improve water quality, waterway health and management of Geographe waterways. It is part of the state government-funded Healthy Estuaries WA program which supports restoration and management activities across the regions.

Revitalising Geographe Waterways has been overseen by the Vasse Taskforce since 2014, with over $18 million invested by State Government, Taskforce Partners, industry and community.

The current phase of the program runs until 2024 and will continue with on-ground actions to reduce nutrients from urban and rural areas, monitoring and science of priority waterways, implementing key actions in water management plans and communicating and engaging with the community through partnerships and collaboration

Fertiliser Management

Nutrients from agricultural fertiliser are the major contributor of nutrients entering Geographe waterways.   Improving fertiliser decisions on farm benefits both the farmer’s profitability and the water quality of Geographe waterways.

Over the last five years GeoCatch and the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (formerly DAFWA) have been working in partnership with farmers and industry to improve fertiliser management through various fertiliser management projects. These projects support farmers through soil testing, nutrient mapping, farmer workshops and access to agronomic advice to ensure fertiliser and profits stay on the farm and out of Geographe waterways. 80 additional farmers have had the opportunity to participate in soil testing programs through Revitalising Geographe Waterways
