Tamar Estuary River Health Action Plan works

What's this project all about?

The Tamar Estuary River Health Action Plan is focused on delivering sewerage and stormwater infrastructure improvement projects for the City of Launceston. 

Established as an initiative of the Launceston City Deal, the Tamar Estuary Management Taskforce  developed the kanamaluka / Tamar Estuary River Health Action Plan.

The Plan has identified projects that will deliver the best outcomes for Launceston, by helping to divert sewage and stormwater away from kanamaluka / Tamar Estuary.

The projects are jointly funded by the Australian and Tasmanian governments, the City of Launceston and TasWater.
