New Parramatta River Initiative

A new initiative launched by the Parramatta River Catchment Group (PRCG), Our Living River, is on a mission to bring back swimming to the Parramatta River by 2025.

The PRCG is proposing to set a range of achievable targets in the aim of bringing currently unusable parts of the river and surrounding creeks back to life.

Currently, the river west of Cabarita is un-swimmable, with the exception of Lake Parramatta.

Benefits to improving the river, surrounding creeks and open areas include better public amenities, greater liveability, healthier living, social connection, increased biodiversity, business opportunities and increased property value.

The initiative is calling on the community to get involved by; going to www.ourlivingriver.com.au, voting for your favourite swimming spot, and showing your support to bring the river and surrounding creeks back to their former glory
