Summary

This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Upper Teviot Brook Sub-catchment Management Project, an initiative supported by project partners Seqwater, Scenic Rim Regional Council, Scenic Rim Rivers Improvement Trust, and the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country program.

The project will provide for increased creek bank stability, facilitate the management of stock access and restore native vegetation to 3.6km of Teviot Brook and Blackrock Creek to reduce streambank erosion and contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. The restoration works will include areas featuring endangered Regional Ecosystem 12.3.3 ‘Eucalyptus tereticornis woodland to open forest on alluvial plains’.

Works to be undertaken as part of this project:
  • 560m of riparian fencing will be established to facilitate the management of 4ha of riparian area
  • 750m² of creek bank soil conservation works will be carried out
  • 13ha riparian weed control (e.g. Chinese elm and lantana) will be carried out
  • 0.5ha riparian re-vegetation will be established.

The landholders will maintain the infrastructure established in the project. They will use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in Teviot Brook
  • improve biodiversity in the Logan catchment through improvements in riparian vegetation condition and biodiversity connectivity along Teviot Brook
  • improve land condition by increasing the uptake of sustainable land management practices through increasing landholders’ knowledge and skills in natural resource management.
