2 WELCOME Message from Mayor and Committee Chairperson Ipswich City Council is proud of its record of achievements in caring for the environment while at the same time striking a delicate balance between preserving and nurturing our waterways and sustainable development.

In 2015 we welcome delegates to the second Ipswich EnviroForum, following the success of our inaugural event last year.

Whether you will be travelling from outside of the Ipswich local government area or a resident of Ipswich, your participation will contribute to this year’s theme of Sharing Water Wisdom for a Sustainable Future.

Ipswich is built around its waterways with the Bremer River having played an important role in the city’s history as a source of drinking water and a navigation route between Ipswich and Brisbane as well as its traditional importance to the Yagara People.

The purpose of this year’s EnviroForum is about coming together and sharing our collective water wisdom for a sustainable future.

It is about collaborations and partnerships, sharing ideas and exploring new territory.

We hope the EnviroForum will leave people feeling empowered to work together to create positive outcomes for our waterways and the broader natural environment.

While delegates are visiting Ipswich we hope you will take time to enjoy some of our outdoor attractions including River Heart Parklands, Queens Park, Ipswich Nature Centre, Nerima Gardens and Robelle Domain in Springfield Central.

TRADITIONAL ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF

COUNTRY FOR IPSWICH

Ipswich City Council would like to respectfully acknowledge that this meeting will occur on the traditional lands of the Yagara People, consisting of the Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul and also pay respect to the Elders both past and present.

The Jagera, Yuggera and Ugarapul People are the Traditional Owners of the land and waters which have been occupied and cared for by their ancestors for countless generations. The Traditional Owners today maintain an interest in the waterways located within the Ipswich Region; these interests are best described as ‘Caring for Country’ and ‘Maintaining their Connection to Country’.

While Cultural Heritage is usually identifiable as artefact scatters, resource sites and quarry sites (to name a few); other culturally significant places such as, dreaming tracks, pathways, massacre sites or creation places are not as readily identifiable without Traditional Owner assistance. The latter described Aboriginal Cultural Heritage is predominately at or in close vicinity to the water ways.

Schedule 11 of the Indigenous Land Use Agreement outlines the procedure for engaging the Traditional Owners when completing management plans; including management plans of waterways for the purpose of protecting the above mentioned Aboriginal Cultural Heritage.

ABOUT THE IPSWICH ENVIROFORUM





The inaugural Ipswich EnviroForum was held at the Ipswich Metro International Hotel in May 2014, and focussed on the topic of biodiversity in the region. Over 100 delegates participated from local government, consultancies, community groups and interested community members. The EnviroForum was a very successful event with a high level of delegate satisfaction.

The Ipswich EnviroForum is an initiative of Ipswich City Council’s Enviroplan levy and supported by conference sponsors. The Ipswich Enviroplan is funded by the ratepayers of Ipswich and aims to promote important environmental issues and provide innovative and effective programs for the safekeeping and management of the City’s natural resources.

ABOUT THE THEME

Sharing Water Wisdom for a Sustainable Future The theme of the EnviroForum relates to “water wisdom” and will take delegates on a journey through multiple aspects of sustainable water management, from rehabilitation of riparian areas to the services provided to the community from local water bodies who provide recreational activities, water supply and treatment, hazard reduction and more. The forum has a particular focus on the importance of collaborations and relationships.

The aim of the event is for all delegates to feel empowered to create real positive outcomes.

INTEGRATED WATER MANAGEMENT IN IPSWICH

The EnviroForum presentations are structured around four themes, which are consistent with Council’s strategic direction for integrated water management.

Community resilience and liveability:

The community is prepared for and resilient to the impact of severe climatic events such as droughts, floods and the impacts of climate change. The water cycle and the natural resources it supports are valued for their contribution to the community’s health, amenity, recreation and long-term liveability of Ipswich as it grows.

Economic development and efficient resource use:

Efficient and effective water management supports a thriving economy and well-managed growth and development, while negative impacts of land use change on the water cycle are minimised or avoided. New developments have access to cost effective integrated urban water services, utilising financially sustainable water sensitive urban design practices.

Water resources are used efficiently to ensure costs to the community are minimised and opportunities for more efficient uses are optimised.

The whole of life cycle costs of decisions associated with water management and activities impacting the water cycle are understood, forecasted, and budgeted for. Costs are shared equitably by those who gain benefits from activities.

Communication and collaboration:

Ipswich’s place within a broader water cycle is understood. The community have an increased awareness, understanding and engagement in water management and decision-making.

Council, the community, water providers, industry, government, environmental groups and other water cycle stakeholders have an improved understanding of each other’s roles and responsibilities. Opportunities for communication, collaboration and partnerships across the water cycle are encouraged and supported.

Protection and enhancement of the natural environment:

Ipswich’s waterways, catchments and riparian areas and the life they support are protected and enhanced, leading to improved environmental and waterway health outcomes, improved water quality, increased biodiversity values, and increased ecological services.

Development in Ipswich occurs in an ecologically sustainable way with regard to water. The multiple values of Ipswich’s waterways are maximised – recognising their multiple functions for amenity, recreation, wetlands, economic values, cooling effects on cities, floodplain and ecological purposes.

CONNECT/COMMUNICATE

The goals of the Ipswich EnviroForum are to:

1. Increase awareness of current and emerging natural resource management projects and trends.

2. Bring like-minded individuals/groups together to exchange information, innovative ideas and experiences relating to sustainable management of the City’s natural resources.

3. Strengthen the environmental network within Ipswich and provide opportunities for the local community to better understand natural resource planning in Ipswich.

These three goals are based on open communication and networking during and following the EnviroForum.

We hope to provide delegates with ample opportunities to meet new people over the course of the day as well as the associated field trip. We strongly encourage delegates to introduce themselves to other delegates and share in each other’s experiences.

PANEL DISCUSSION

A panel discussion will be facilitated at the end of the day, allowing for delegates to pose questions and engage in discussions with representatives from the day’s presentations.

LOCAL COMMUNITY GROUP REPRESENTATION

Relevant local community groups will be invited to participate in a poster exhibition, showcasing their goals, activities and achievements. Delegates will be encouraged to view this exhibition during breaks and talk to group representatives.

NETWORK DRINKS

After the forum, delegates are invited to stay for the formal launch of Ipswich City Council’s Integrated Water Strategy and network drinks. Network drinks provide a great opportunity to meet new likeminded individuals, as well as catching up with old friends, to discuss the outcomes of the event.

8 FIELD TRIP Thursday 30 April 2015 Seqwater’s Wivenhoe Dam and Mt Crosby Water Treatment Plant Seqwater ensures a safe, secure, resilient and reliable water supply for South East Queensland, as well as providing essential flood mitigation services and managing catchment health. They manage more than $10 billion of water supply assets and the natural catchments of the region’s major water supply sources.

Wivenhoe Dam and Mt Crosby Water Treatment Plant are critical infrastructure in Seqwater’s bulk water supply network. Delegates are invited to participate in a field trip on Thursday 30 April 2015 to understand their role in the source, store and supply of water in South East Queensland.

The tour offers delegates the opportunity to meet engineering, catchment and water quality experts from Seqwater and take a first-hand look at their assets in operation – from catchment to tap.

–  –  –

The safety of staff, visitors and community is a priority at Seqwater.

All delegates are asked to bring:

• Hat

• Sunscreen

• Closed in shoes

• Long pants and long sleeved shirts

• Water bottle Note that the cost to attend the field trip is incorporated into the total EnviroForum cost.
