Summary

The broader project will assist flood affected landholders identified through SEQC, Council and regional industry groups to return to production and improve the natural resilience of the waterways.

This project will:
  • stabilise approximately 400m of creek bank in the Upper Tenthill Creek catchment through bank battering (recently completed)
  • re-vegetate approximately 200m of creek bank with native trees, shrubs and grasses after topdressing with material obtained from enlarging and repairing a farm dam
  • help protect essential farm infrastructure
  • help continue agricultural production by improving bank stability in future moderate floods to improve water quality in upper Tenthill Creek by repairing bank erosion and re-vegetating creek bank
  • carry out 400m of creek bank engineering (bank battering)
  • establish 200m of riparian re-vegetation.
