East Trinity remediation program - scientific and technical reports

This publication set contains reports discussing various aspects of the East Trinity remediation project. East Trinity is a 774 hectare environmental reserve, located directly across Trinity Inlet from the Cairns central business district. In the 1970's, the area was drained for sugar cane production, causing the soil to acidify. The site was purchased by the Queensland Government in 2000 and an innovative low-cost remediation project commenced.
