Bridge Creek Landslip Remediation Final Report & Aquittal

Bridge_Creek_Mass_Movement_Report_&_Recommendations_-_Bridge_Creek_Landslip_Remediation_Final_Report_&_Aquittal_web_version.pdf_-_2014-02-13_15.38.40The project re-vegetated a landslip in the Bridge Creek (Lake Baroon) catchment. The site was assessed by a geotechnical consultant who recommended the installation of sub-surface drains and profiling of the site to create a free draining surface, and re-vegetation with native species to provide long-term stability. The re-vegetation over time will reinforce the soil profile, increasing the sheer strength and reduce susceptibility to erosion. Additionally a dense cover of native vegetation will extract moisture from the soil profile through transpiration leading to lower ground water pressure. Furthermore, the re-vegetation will extend existing corridor linkages and habitat nodes.
