. remove tunnel vegetation i.e. trees which stop light reaching the stream bed preventing weed growth
. install LWD into the stream
These were recommendations of WTT Advisory Visit report Sep 2007.
We hope that WTT will be able to help manage this project; an initial meeting between EA, WTT and DNMAC is planned for mid/late May.
There will be plenty of behind the scenes work needed before any visible work can commence e.g.
. agreement of landowners
. approval of flood management authority (EA)
. collection of electro-fishing and invertebrate data (EA).
