Produced by Kyeamba Valley Landcare Group, through the project “Slow the Flow: Erosion Control in the Kyeamba Valley”, funded by the NSW Environmental Trust.
This booklet gives a background to the history and process of erosion in the Kyeamba Valley, and provides ‘how-to’ guides for over ten low-cost erosion control structures which landholders can install on their properties using resources available on the property, or available to purchase at low cost.
This is followed by 21 case studies of erosion sites in the Kyeamba Valley, with each case study detailing the issue, recommended approach and outcome of works. Case studies cover sites of headcut formation and migration, channel incision and tributary erosion. Numerous photographs complement the descriptions, providing a clear guide for landholders looking for solutions to similar issues on their own properties.
