Murray CHRMAP

Citizen science and input from a community reference group will assist in the development of a plan to manage Murray’s river and estuary environments.

A coastal hazard risk management and adaptation plan is needed to mitigate the impacts and risks of coastal hazards including erosion and inundation, on the Peel Harvey Estuary and tidally influenced portions of the Murray and Serpentine Rivers.

Through a collaborative, objective and comprehensive study, we will gain a deeper understanding of our coastal areas which will be used to develop a long-term strategy to support future coastal management and planning decisions.

Our coastal areas are an intrinsic part of life in Murray, as home to tens of thousands of water birds and other important flora and fauna and housing a range of recreation, conservation, residential and commercial assets.

The increasing extent and frequency of coastal hazards will pose even greater risks into the future and we need to act to protect our environment, character, amenity and way of life

The CHRMAP project will be overseen by a steering group made up of community, Shire and state agency representatives as well as a community reference group.

Two community information sessions were held in late-November. Check out the information package for a visual overview of the project.

Murray CHRMAP | Study Area

11 months

We know Murray’s estuary and river contribute largely towards the community’s way of life, housing a range of recreation, conservation, residential and commercial assets.

In order to plan strategically for the future, we’re undertaking a collaborative study to bolster our knowledge of the area with local, on-the-ground citizen data.

Within the study area (yellow boundary), let us know about:

  • An area and how you use it 
  • A place and how you value it
  • An environmental observation

Getting these right will ensure the most effective outcome for decision making is achieved.
