1: Waterway health planning tools

Details Will develop and implement planning tools that will allow different management options and their associated outcomes to be evaluated. These tools will inform prioritization of restoration and protection works, as well as scales of investment from reaches to the whole region, for waterway strategies and plans.

 
Outcomes Tools to help decide where investment in stream protection is likely to provide greatest benefit.
