ST: Control of Erosion Hot Spots

Conduct remediation works in identified high priority sites to control erosion, minimise the loss of sediment and improve water quality downstream.

Why it is important?

Stabilising erosion hot spots can result in significant improvements to water quality, by reducing the input of sediment and nutrients to waterways. Targeting high risk areas, such as eroding gullies and streambanks, will improve local water quality and reduce pollutants reaching the Great Barrier Reef lagoon.

Examples of Local Action

  • Revegetating waterways in the Upper Barron catchment.

Contribution to Regional Priority

R-CM 16: Reducing Erosion and Improving Drainage
