The Queensland Government has established draft environmental values and water quality objectives for the waters of the Mackay-Whitsunday region under the Environmental Protection (Water) Policy 2009. These are derived from information in the Mackay–Whitsunday Region Water Quality Improvement Plan (Reef Catchments; 2008), available local water quality data, Great Barrier Reef water quality guidelines, and the Queensland water quality guidelines. Interested parties are invited to have their say on the draft documents. Submissions close on 31 August 2012.
