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 builds upon bank stabilisation earthworks completed by the landholder to protect agricultural land adjacent to Laidley Creek, increasing the resilience of the riparian area by adding to its stability as well as reducing sediment movement and improving water quality.

Three thousand native plants will be established along 130m of creek bank over an area of approximately 0.3ha. A contractor will be employed to supply and install the tubestock and the landholder will be responsible for maintaining the planting site with watering and weeding if necessary. The site is immediately upstream of works being conducted to stabilise the creek based on a geomorphological investigation and recommendations.

3000 native plants were planted on 0.3ha along 130m riparian zone.

Benefits

This project will:
  • improve water quality and riparian condition in Laidley Creek.
