Summary

This project precedes the development of a sub-catchment management plan for a 20km section of the Teviot Brook that will be developed in consultation with local landholders. This project will serve as a demonstration site to show other landholders in the Teviot Brook sub-catchment the types of activities that can be undertaken to restore, protect and maintain the health of riparian areas.

The project will facilitate the management of stock access to a 0.4km section of Blackrock Creek, a tributary of Teviot Brook, to reduce streambank erosion and contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment.

As part of this project, engineering works will be used to stabilise a 0.4km section of the creek, and 0.4km of riparian fencing and 775 native tube-stocks will be established to facilitate the management and improve the ecological condition of 2ha of riparian area. The project will facilitate changed management practice over 14ha of land.

The landholders will maintain the infrastructure and tube-stock established in the project. They will use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area. A case study will be produced on the project and the site will be used to host a field day event as part of the Teviot Brook Riparian Restoration project.

Benefits

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