The degradation of Australia’s wetlands has brought into sharp focus the need to manage factors such as altered flow and water regimes. Exchanging knowledge between wetland managers and wetland scientists and putting it into practice is an essential part of this management.
Yet environmental watering of wetlands is a relatively new type of intervention, especially where engineering infrastructure is used. It is largely restricted to south eastern Australia. Thus, while there is considerable knowledge about biophysical responses to water regime in wetlands, there are few specific examples of wetland watering from which we can draw practical experience.
