    This project aims to conserve, restore and rehabilitate large parts of the Gascoyne River catchment eroded by a flood in 2010.

    The Upper Gascoyne Land Conservation District Committee, in partnership with the Shire of Upper Gascoyne, EMU Service, and local landholders, will work to stabilise the catchment environment to prevent further damage.

    Work will occur on six station properties, focusing on activities to reduce water velocity and sediment flows into creeks and rivers.

    Activities include:

    • installation of sediment filters (Enviro-rolls)
    • revegetation
    • relocation of stock watering points away from river banks.
    Investment: $ 25 000
    Delivery organisation: Upper Gascoyne Land Conservation District Committee
    Project duration: December 2012 - June 2013
    Location: The Upper Gascoyne Land Conservation District Committee area
