Creek debris will be cleared soon

LORD Mayor Campbell Newman said the majority of debris from Brisbane's flood affected waterways and natural areas could be removed by the end of March but the recovery process may take several years.

Cr Newman, who is chairing Brisbane's Recovery Task Group, said council had identified and assessed the majority of the city's creeks, waterway corridors and natural areas and plans were under way to retrieve foreign objects and restore the natural habitat where possible.

Important local waterways including Oxley Creek, Stable Swamp Creek, Rocky Water Holes, Blunder Creek and Schultz Canal, bushland reserves and 2 Million Trees planting sites suffered widespread damage during the floods, leaving behind a trail of mud, silt, rubbish and debris.
