DG: Stabilising Waterways

Stabilise creeks and rivers in the Mossman area using engineering and revegetation to prevent sediment loss into waterways.

Why it is Important?

Unstable and eroding waterways contribute sediment into local creeks and rivers and result in the loss of valuable topsoil from farms. Stabilising these areas will strengthen the banks and improve resilience, particularly during high flows and flood events. Using revegetation can also improve biodiversity outcomes.

Examples of Local Action

  • Ongoing programs for revegetation and stabilisation along Cassowary and Saltwater Creeks, the Mossman River and all other unstable waterways throughout the catchment.
