Appropriate in-stream interventions - 1999

A lot is known about the water and environment of the creeklands!

A forum was held in Armidale in April 1999 to explore “Appropriate instream intervention to improve the environmental and recreational value of Dumaresq Creek – will work and who will pay?"

Whilst there are a number of concerns, recommending caution in designing and implementing changes, a quote from the Executive Summary concludes:

Constructed wetlands, ponds and paths and bridges were rated highest for improving the recreational value and constructed wetland highest for improving the environmental value of Dumaresq Creek and its surrounds.
