This project was undertaken in the Bowen-Broken Catchment, which was identified as a priority area for on-ground works because of the high levels of sediments leaving the sub-catchment and impacting downstream irrigation areas, Bowling Green Bay and the Great Barrier Reef.
The project delivered a number of activities focused on erosion and water quality monitoring and best management practices for grazing, including establishing a riparian fencing case study.
