Project delivered by: De Grey LCDC
Contact name: Mary-Anne Clunies- Ross
Start Date: April 2014
End Date: December 2014
Site Location: Three sites in the mid – upper De Grey river catchment
Three members of the DeGrey LCDC have set up their own demonstrations of Rangelands Rehydration works. This builds on the Rangelands NRM sponsored field days with Peter Andrews in 2012. A Catchment Function Analysis of the sub catchment has been carried out at each site, to map how the catchment should function and where natural water flows have been disrupted or compromised. Based on this, on ground works such as ponding banks, eco-rolls, brush fences etc. will be designed and targeted to restore natural water functions by slowing and spreading water at critical parts of the sub catchment. This will result in the rehydration and regeneration of natural flood plains.
