Disaster rebuild goes natural

THE rebuilding of Queensland's natural environments after last summer's floods and cyclones has been bolstered with $8.4 million in funding announced by the State Government.

It is hoped that the repair work will mean waterways, catchment areas and their surroundings are prepared for future natural disasters.

As part of the funding, $2.7 million has been allocated to South East Queensland Catchments to carry out restoration works in the Lockyer Valley, Bremer and Upper Brisbane catchments.

The group will also purchase specialised equipment for flood damage assessment and support the Tenthill Creek/Mount Sylvia restoration project.

The Burnett Mary Regional Group received $200,000 to carry out bank stabilisation works and weed control in affected riparian areas.
