Working with growers to keep sediment and nutrients on farm and out of coastal waterways while supporting profitable and sustainable agriculture.
The Clean Coastal Catchments (CCC) project is funded through the NSW Government’s Marine Estate Management Strategy to improve water quality for our ocean, estuaries, and coastal wetlands.
CCC is working with intensive agricultural industries in key coastal areas to actively manage issues associated with production and land management that can damage the marine estate.
Better management of fertiliser and water on farm will assist industry to be more productive, profitable and environmentally sustainable, while reducing negative impacts on coastal creeks and rivers and sensitive marine areas.
Take a look at our Updates, Newsletters & Media page to find out more about CCC events and activities.
