The Sullivans Creek Catchment Group was wound up in 2011. The work undertaken by the Group led to the construction of wetlands  at David St, Banksia St, Dickson and Lyneham on Sullivans Creek and its tributaries, contributing to an improvement in water quality in Sullivans Creek where it meets Lake Burley Griffin.

Who is Sullivans Creek Catchment Group?

The Sullivans Creek Catchment Group is a volunteer, community based organisation that seeks to facilitate the restoration, protection, maintenance and enhancement of the natural social and economic values of the Sullivans Creek catchment. This is achieved through the strategic implementation of an integrated catchment management plan developed in consultation with the catchment community, government agencies, scientific and technical experts and corporate partners.

The membership is drawn form a wide range of people including students, young families, retirees and University staff. The community plans to undertake programs involving solar hot water installations, efficient shower heads and insulation retrofitting.
