SEQWater has defended their water catchment management, as the latest Healthy Waterways report card revealed no improvement from last year.
The report card shows Queensland catchments are averaging a ‘C’ to a ‘D’ when it comes to water quality, with the Oxley Catchment dropping from a ‘D-‘ to an ‘F’.
The organisation has invested more than $7 million into Queensland waterways over the past year, but spokesperson Mike Foster says the community needs to get involved if they want to see real change.
An Australian-first trial is underway which allows Queensland women to pre-book free breast screenings.
More than 2,000 women are involved in the trial, which Cancer Council Queensland says will help save lives.
Cancer Council spokesperson Katie Clift says the trial will help busy women find the time to get checked for breast cancer, which affects nearly 3,000 Queenslanders each year.
