Catchment Solutions undertook an integrated catchment approach to sediment reduction associated with gully and stream bank erosion while working in the Reef Trust IV program over the last 5 years. The Project originally targeted two sediment producing creek systems, Princhester and Ten Mile Creeks located within the neighbourhood catchment F11 of the Fitzroy River.
Catchment Solutions partnered with landholders and on ground service providers to coordinate and provide funding to directly address hillslope and alluvial gullies with stream bank restoration and re-vegetation programs.
Seven project sites across eight properties – from the Styx River to Lower Fitzroy (between Morinish and Garnant) were targeted for rehabilitation and received:
In March 2022 the final Reef Trust IV forum was held to review all of the fantastic projects being run under the program and Phil Jeston from Catchment Solutions presented to the audience the outcomes of the work that had been delivered, the learnings and recommendations for similar programs to follow.
