North Kenilworth streambank stabilisation
Case study type
30 March 2020
30 June 2020
This project seeks to implement streambank stabilisation works to prevent further erosion of the Mary River's banks at a landholder's property. The streambank stabilisation works will involve re-profiling the streambank to a 1:3 slope, inserting timber pile-fields close to the water's edge, and placing gravel and rock on the re-profiled gully erosion site where a creek enters the Mary River. Geofabric and erosion matting will be installed and seeding of disturbed areas will occur after construction.
Reduced retreat of the streambank, safeguarding the landholder's grazing area. Improved stability for the adjacent areas where freshwater turtles nest.
