Upper Herbert Water Quality Program

The Upper Herbert Water Quality Program aims to prevent 4,082 tonnes of fine sediments from leaving the catchment each year.

Implemented by Terrain NRM, improved water quality will be achieved via a combination gully remediation, streambank remediation and improving grazing management practices.

The $3.45 million program is employing a range of measures, including installation of pile-fields, infill and reshaping/battering of streambanks, revegetation and hillslope or sheet erosion grazing management practice change. The project will focus on land condition improvement, an enhanced understanding of soil and grassland systems, and rotational grazing methodologies.
