Summary

This project is part of the on-ground implementation of the Upper Warrill Healthy Country project, an initiative supported by the Queensland State Government.

The project will facilitate the control of stock by fencing off stock access to contribute to improved water quality and riparian health in the sub-catchment. In addition, vetiver grass and tee trees will be established along vulnerable creek bank areas to improve creek bank stability and reduce creek bank erosion during medium to high creek flows.

The environmental benefit will include the rehabilitation of areas featuring endangered Regional Ecosystem 12.3.7 ‘Narrow fringing woodland of Eucalyptus tereticornis, Casuarina cunninghamiana subsp. cunninghamiana +/- Melaleuca viminalis, Waterhousea floribunda. Other species associated with this RE include Melaleuca bracteata and associated riparian vegetation types’.

This project will:
  • deliver 1.06km of riparian fencing
  • plant 4000 vetiver plants
  • plant 250 Melaleuca bracteata and Eucalyptus tereticornis stems
  • install a trough for off-stream watering.

The proponent will water vetiver plants and the trees planted along the bank, and conduct weed control around the plants to allow them to establish. They will use photo-points to monitor riparian vegetation condition in the project area and supply photos of the completed fence.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in Warrill Creek by rehabilitating the riparian zone through stock management and re-vegetation.
