Summary

The broader project will assist flood affected landholders identified through SEQ Catchments’, Council and regional industry group investigations to return to production and improve the natural resilience of the waterways.

This project will build help control cattle movement into riparian areas, allowing those areas to regenerate after the effects of recent floods and subsequent earthworks required for road restoration.

This project will:
  • erect 650m of fencing to better manage the riparian areas by allowing control of stock access to Blackfellow Creek and Black Duck Creek
  • install off-stream watering points (three troughs fed by two tanks), connected to a bore pump via 700m of 63OD poly pipe (PN8 and PN12) to better manage ground cover across the property. One trough will be filled directly from the existing main irrigation line whilst the two tanks will be connected via poly pipe.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality in Blackfellow and Black Duck Creeks by enhancing the condition of riparian vegetation through stock management.
