Rapid Creek Water Advisory Committee
Rapid Creek is a small, relatively natural drainage system located in Darwin’s Northern suburbs. The creek extends for a distance of 9.8kms and drains a catchment of approximately 28km2.
Unlike many such drainage lines elsewhere in urban areas, Rapid Creek supports a number of important remnant vegetation communities and the creek channel is virtually undeveloped for its entire length.
The reestablishment of the Rapid Creek Water Advisory Committee is to ensure a consultative approach to water management and planning.
The Committee will provide advice to the Controller of Water Resources on water quality and water resource management issues affecting Rapid Creek and its catchment. They will also contribute to the development of a Water Management Plan and contribute to monitoring and annual assessment against the plan.
