<p>In stream vegetation patchy but reasonably extensive. Active erosion and deposition occurring along the site area. Verge and bank vegetation still extensive and of reasonably good quality. </p>
<p>Still rather weedy banks, but native verge vegetation maturing and now provides good cover. In stream vegetation improved. Still some spot erosion evident along banks, but not severe.</p>
21 June 2015: Observation site is now 100 m downstream of the earlier site, now close to our water sampling site. There has been unsightly and possibly serious pollution in the Glen Waverley Drain (Crosby arm, site 1b). All underwater surfaces (rocks, soil, vegetation) are coated with a soft clinging pale brown substance, with a consistency like lint and flour paste mixed, with a slight fatty odour. This extends from emergence from pipes at Waverley Rd, downstream to the first wetlands pond at Blackburn Rd. Otherwise, assessment is similar to the previous site in 2014.
26 Aug 2012: Still very poor in stream vegetation due to 2010 pollution and sediment deposits (probably from upstream bank erosion and erosion of crushed rock pathways). Widespread weeds (tradescantia and panic veldt grass) on both verges.
