Torbay Inlet and Lake Powell

Water quality in the catchment, Torbay Inlet and Lake Powell remains poor because of the long-lasting legacy of past land management practices, including catchment modification. This has led to the accumulation of nutrients in the sediment as well as the continuing nutrient inputs from the catchment. Efforts in the catchment to reduce the nutrient loads entering the inlet through fertiliser management and on-farm waterway rehabilitation remain essential to ensure the water quality in Torbay Inlet and its tributaries does not deteriorate further
