Summary

Redland City Council, through the Waterways Extension Program, will engage the landholder to conduct re-vegetation to enhance the riparian buffer zone of Eprapah Creek. Further areas of re-vegetation will be established to provide improved filtration to run-off that enters the property from upstream properties, several of which include chicken farms and highly eroding landscapes. This re-vegetation will provide an effective mechanism to reduce nutrient inputs to Eprapah Creek and help to improve overall catchment health. The landholder involved in the project has been part of Redland City Council’s Waterway Extension Program for the past couple of years and these proposed works have been prioritised after several property visits from Redland City Council officers. Works (including site preparation, planting, and monitoring) will be administered and overseen directly by council, with appropriately qualified contractors employed to carry out works.

The landholder will be responsible for ongoing maintenance, with ongoing support provided by Redland City Council through the Waterways Extension Program to improve the water quality and resilience of Eprapah Creek catchment.
