Summary

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

This project will stabilise approximately 250m of creek bank along Upper Blackfellow Creek and reinstate a levee along the first 80m to help protect the farm and house from future flood damage. The levee will be reinstated at a lower vertical height and slightly upstream from the historic levee that existed prior to the floods. The initial stages of a long-term re-vegetation program for the site will commence.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality and riparian condition in Upper Blackfellow Creek
  • help protect farm infrastructure and house from future flood events.
