Date Comment Bank Erosion Stability Bank Vegetation In Stream Cover Riffles Pools Bends Verge Vegetation Overall
21-02-2005 Flood plain approx 0.5km wide. Grazed & cropped since late 1830s. Surrounding land mostly used for lucerne hay production with seasonal grazing (approx 6 month/year). River width 33m, depth 5m (bank to bank). Red gums on banks only, very little regeneration. Silver tussock verges mostly replaced by phalaris since introduciton in 1950-60, reasonably successful in preventing bank erosion. Tussock regularly burnt to eliminate rabbits and foxes. No understorey. Fair 3 Good 8 Poor 4 Poor 2 Good 8 Fair 25
