Summary

This property has a gully that concentrates run-off across grazing lands from a significant catchment area into the Bremer River. The high velocity waters have resulted in an active head cut, bank erosion and channel incising. The site has limited vegetation cover and is primarily grassed. The aim of the work is to slow the velocity of water to reduce continued damage and soil loss. Work carried out in this project will involve fencing the entire gully to prevent stock access and re-vegetation of the gully to stabilise banks and the channel. There is a scattered infestation of Chinese celtis (exotic weed). These will be controlled prior to work commencing and will be maintained by the landholder. Work carried out will improve water quality through better soil cover and more stable banks. The gully vegetation width will range from 6m to 10m on either side of the gully.

This project will be enhanced by similar works across the community, aimed at reducing water quality and sediment loss within the catchment.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in the Bremer River and Moreton Bay by reducing gully and stream bank erosion through riparian re-vegetation and stock management.
