Ecological sediment mitigation study
Two reports on ecological sediment mitigation can be downloaded from the link below.
The "Sediment Feasibility Study" identified the Tharwa region of the Murrumbidgee River as being of high priority for improving fish habitat. It has been recommended that improving the function of existing fish habitat structures ('the rock groynes") will enhance fish habitat and create a connected "fish path" to help fish movement upstream.
The "Concept Plan to Improve Fish Habitat at Tharwa" builds on the previous report by recommending the best management option for improving fish habitat via the construction of engineered log jams (ELJ's). ELJ's are bars or groynes, predominately under the water surface, built of interlocked trees, logs and rocks.
