Woolshed Creek salinity mitigation and wetland enhancement (tree planting): McMichael - phase 1
Powerlink (GreenWorks program)
Case study type
Powerlink Queensland (Greenworks Program)
15 July 2010
30 March 2011
This project is supported by Powerlink Queensland under their Greenworks Program. The overall project builds upon previous investigations by Professor Roger Shaw that identified approaches needed to mitigate salinity in Woolshed and Plain Creek catchments. The project has used Property Management Planning principles in an adult learning environment in order to plan for and implement actions aimed at reducing the impacts of salinity and improving land management and water quality outcomes for the Woolshed and Plain Creek catchments.
This project will result in planting 450 local native trees in order to help maintain a lower water table and reduce the incidence of salinity in the catchment. Additionally, it will provide habitat for local fauna and improve the visual amenity of the area in the vicinity of the Powerlink 500kV powerlines.
