Landscape remediation work in the BBB
GULLY erosion causes approximately 65 per cent of the fine sediment load that comes from the BBB.
The Landscape Remediation program aims to develop fast, effective and economical approaches to gully remediation.
It will build on existing expertise and lessons learned from previous trials, and also draw upon the knowledge of graziers and technical specialists.
Demonstration sites will be established to showcase different methods of treating large-scale features, according to erosion and soil type.
This will help to guide future investment in landscape remediation, and determine which methods may be transferable to other areas.
The program will also work with BBB landholders to treat smaller-scale erosion features over extended areas, and will also closely align with the BBB Grazier Support program by working with landholders on preventing erosion.
