The Black Snake Creek Catchment in South East Queensland is located approximately 55 km South West of Brisbane and 17 km North West of Ipswich, flowing through the towns of Marburg, Glamorgan Vale and Fairney View.
The Marburg community has identified both opportunities and challenges across the Black Snake Creek catchment area over recent years, including impacts from flooding and declining water quality.
Council is working towards preserving and enhancing the environmental, economic, social and recreational potential of the area this through a Total Water Cycle Management Plan for the Black Snake Creek Catchment. The plan has been facilitated by an experienced team of environmental, economic and social experts, with significant input from your community.
Ipswich City Council appointed the Black Snake Creek Total Water Cycle project team to consider flooding, water quality, salinity and amenity challenges facing the community.
