11032: Pearce Base South stage 1 – Ellen Brook rehabilitation
Ellen Brook is a priority waterway and has the largest catchment area of all sub-catchments on the Swan Coastal Plain. The brook discharges into the Swan River where it is a major contributor of total nitrogen and phosphorous nutrient loads.
The Ellen Brook Catchment management plan identifies the removal of animal access to the waterway and revegetation as priority activities for reducing nutrient exports from the catchment.
With the help of State NRM Program funding, this project will fence sections of the waterway to prevent stock access and revegetate land adjacent to the waterway to prevent erosion and silt export.
