10037: Quairading ‘Town Common’ Reserve water and revegetation
The Quairading 'Town Common' Reserve comprises about 50 ha on the eastern edge of the Quairading town site. The bushland has a number of species of declared rare flora.
But over the past 10 to 20 years, salinity has emerged through a low-lying point within the reserve and has led to a loss of vegetation.
With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project aims to restore the degraded areas by planting native, salt-tolerant species (such as Casuarina obesa) in a pattern that will regenerate and contain the encroaching problem. In addition, a bore will be installed to the south as a way of lowering the watertable. This bore will also act as a water supply for the town.
