Description of charity’s activities and outcomes
Our portfolio of Water Stewardship demonstration projects grew this year. The Western Port Water Stewardship Project developed strongly following the recruitment of a Project Manager, employed by our partner, the Western Port Biosphere Reserve Foundation. The project leverages the leading role that the Inghams Enterprises site in Somerville has played in the development and implementation of water stewardship. In recent months Lance has started to build participation of major water users on the Mornington Peninsula, who are starting to develop water stewardship plans for implementation at their sites. As well as anticipated participants such as horticultural enterprises, the project has attracted participation from two schools in the region and the interest of Landcare groups. For the Northern Murray Darling Basin Project, water stewardship training (an activity reported in 2014) was offered to staff of Norman Farming and the Queensland Murray Darling Committee (QMDC). WSA undertook an assessment of catchment challenges with assistance of the QMDC. WSA also undertook a gap analysis with the cotton industry myBMP standard (which is already aligned with the Better Cotton Initiative). WSA has provided briefings on the project to local stakeholders. It is expected to continue to progress over coming months with the development of a Water Stewardship Plan for the Norman Farming site that aims to address the identified catchment challenges. WSA worked with South Australian Murray I
