This document reports on an assessment of those recommendations applied at catchment scale and provides information on procedures that others may follow and improve upon.
Tasks involved were:
- Comparing methods for estimating groundcover
- Report on use of land management practices for water erosion control
- Undertake air photograph interpretation and ground observations of gully erosion
- Report on use of land management practices for gully erosion control
- Undertake air photograph interpretation and ground observations of streambank erosion
- Report on use of land management practices for streambank erosion control.
This assessment was conducted in and around the Condamine River Catchment in Queensland (see Figure 1) from its source near Killarney to its confluence with the Dogwood Creek near Miles, after which it becomes the Balonne River. The catchment includes mixed farming upland areas and an extensive floodplain which is predominantly used for grain growing.
The assessment involved officers from the Condamine Alliance and Queensland Murray-Darling Committee Natural Resource Management Regions and the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Water. Cash funding was provided by the NLWRA and ‘in-kind’ by other participating bodies. The assessment was conducted during 2007.
