Join us for OCCA's bi-monthly general meeting at 5.30pm on Tuesday 28 April at the Oxley Creek Common (Red Shed), Sherwood Road Rocklea.
The meeting will feature a Special Presentation on Water Quality in Oxley Creek by Tony Weber. Tony's presentation will also address the high enterococci levels recorded at Cliveden Avenue
Tony is an Associate at consultants BMT WBM with over 25 years experience in the water industry. As the National Practice Leader for Water Quality, he manages the water quality discipline across BMT WBM’s Australian operations. In his current role, Tony provides a range of water quality related services to government and industry across Australia, the UK, Europe and Asia. Tony has a degree in chemistry from QUT, is a Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University’s Fenner School.
Tony first got involved in Oxley Creek through training programs he delivered for the Waterwatch Program in the early 1990s, also running several water quality monitoring programs from the old Council’s laboratories at Donaldson Rd, Rocklea and then as part of the Waterways Program in Brisbane City Council. Being tempted to the “dark side” of consulting in 2002, he has still worked in the catchment including helping manage Forest Lake, building catchment models of Oxley Creek and being involved with nutrient management for QUU.
You'll also get to hear about OCCA's current projects and recent activities and get an update on OCCA's new Catchment Centre in Coopers Plains!
Volunteers, friends, members, and general public, all welcome.
Light refreshments will be provided.
