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

A reduced resolution version: Young River Catchment, Farmers Rd Creek, Stream Rehabilitation Demonstration Reach, Site Assessment and Outcomes after 5 Years (499 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.
