    Mortlock River as a major contributor of sediment, salt and nutrients to the Swan-Avon catchment. Its catchment is degraded and foreshore vegetation generally consists of trees over weeds or pasture.

    This project will focus on fencing, weed control and revegetation between the Mortlock - Mortlock East confluence and Quailing Gully.

    Activities of the project will be used as an example to encourage landholders in the catchment to build on rehabilitation works.

    Investment: $ 25 000
    Delivery organisation: Wheatbelt NRM
    Project duration: November 2012 - December 2014
    Location: Mortlock and Mortlock South catchment specifically in the Duck Pool to Quailing Gully
