The broader project will assist flood affected landholders identified through SEQ Catchments, Council and regional industry groups to return to production and improve the natural resilience of the waterways.

This project builds upon bank stabilisation earthworks completed by the landholder to protect agricultural land adjacent to Tenthill Creek. It will increase the resilience of the riparian area by adding to its stability as well as reduce sediment movement and improve water quality.

Four planting beds will be established, each consisting of 500 plants, to assist in the stabilisation of the bank. Deep rooted perennial native trees will be planted along the top bank and the entire 1.5ha (approximately 500m x 30m) will be sown with millet and grass seed to provide ground cover.

The completed project will help protect council maintained infrastructure, with the low level crossing providing access to Upper Tenthill School.


This project will:
- improve water quality and riparian condition in Upper Tenthill Creek by stabilising 500m of creek bank through earthworks.
