Knapps Creek Catchment has been recognised as one of three catchments in SEQ to which funding has been made available in order to reduce sediment flowing into Moreton Bay. As part of this funding, landholders have the opportunity to take on remedial works on their property.
This property has two sub-catchments tagged as high priority gullies for rehabilitation works. This project will undertake remedial works in the gullies, fence them off, re-vegetate the area immediately surrounding the gully works and install a major and a minor sediment trap (in the form of dams) in the larger of the two gully erosion sites.
