This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Running Creek Sub-catchment Management Plan. The project will facilitate the management of stock access to a 0.75km section of Running Creek to reduce streambank erosion and contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment.
This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Running Creek Sub-catchment Management Plan. The project will facilitate the management of stock access to a 1.2km section of Running Creek to reduce streambank erosion and contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment.
As part of this project, 608m of riparian fencing and an off-stream water point will be established. The fencing will also facilitate the protection of 37ha of native rainforest vegetation on the adjacent streambank. The project will also involve weed control over an area of 11.5ha in the riparian zone.
The landholders will establish 608m of riparian fencing and a trough, and manage weeds (including lantana, crofton weed and ragweed) in the fenced off area using their own equipment and labour. They will employ a contractor to build a dam in the adjacent paddock to enable livestock to be watered.
The landholders will maintain the infrastructure established in the project and will also have responsibility for ongoing weed control. They will use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition and weed infestations in the project area.
