The pamphlet informs us how we can assist in the management of waterways and groundwater through our everyday activities around the house. The message: What goes down the street drains ends in our waterways.

“The Yellow Fish programme has already been introduced to a number of urban catchments within the City of Gosnells, and local residents have been keen to learn about drains and their links to our rivers.
