Actions for the Pallinup: Middle Pallinup Floodway Condition Survey.

Report prepared for North Stirling Pallinup Natural Resource Inc.  Janicke, S. & Janicke, G. (2017). This report outlines the results of a detailed survey of the environmental condition of 43 kilometres of the Middle Pallinup River floodway. The Pallinup is a highly degraded river and the report rests its assertions and conclusions relative to this. The survey repeated an assessment that was made in the Spring of 2001 and added mapping of the environmental values as they were in 2017.

The main report can be downloaded here (size 2.9 MB):  SUPP-1-2 Pallinup Photo Audit PALL041-059.pdf (34 downloads)

Supplement 1: Pallinup River 2001-2017 Photo Audit Comparison 

An initial photo audit was undertaken by Steve Janicke and Travis Drysdale in 2001. The 2017 Photo Point Audit was undertaken by Steve & Geraldine Janicke. The photo audit consisted of 155 geo-referenced photos taken along 43 kilometres of the middle Pallinup River. The audit provides a rapid assessment that can be repeated at a later date to track changes in the river condition. Due to the size of the images, Supplement 1 is divided into 8 documents and each are 3 to 4 MBs in size.

Young River Catchment, Farmers Road Creek, Stream Rehabilitation Demonstration Reach, Site Assessments and Outcomes after 5 Years (2016)

A reduced resolution version: Young River Catchment, Farmers Rd Creek, Stream Rehabilitation Demonstration Reach, Site Assessment and Outcomes after 5 Years (1098 downloads)

The stream rehabilitation site was established in 2011 on what was called the Farmers Road Creek (not an official name). It was hoped that ongoing observations of the site would demonstrate what can be achieved and what stream management issues may arise. The work also provided an ideal opportunity to investigate the ways in which long-term environmental outcomes for saline stream rehabilitation on the South Coast can be assessed.
