Habitat

Date Comment Bank Erosion Stability Bank Vegetation In Stream Cover Riffles Pools Bends Verge Vegetation Overall
23-06-2019 <p>Very little in-stream vegetation, and continued deposition of sand and gravel along the site-area stream bed. &nbsp;Erosion appears more extensive than last year.&nbsp;</p> Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Poor 4 22
24-06-2018 <p>Erosion along North bank has increased, vegetation cover along N bank and verge affected by deposits of sand/gravel. Verge vegetation still very weedy.</p> Poor 2 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Poor 4 21
23-07-2017 <p>23 July 2017:&nbsp; There is still very little in-stream vegetation. Verge vegetation very weedy (Tradescantia etc). Spot erosion still apparent.</p> Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Fair 6 24
19-06-2016 In stream vegetation has been largely removed by dredging - slowly returning. Verge vegetation very weedy (Tradescantia etc). Spot erosion still apparent. Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Good 4 Fair 6 Fair 25
21-06-2015 21 June 2015: Little change from 2014. The bridge approaches have been concreted to avoid washouts of the previous crushed granite surface. Fair 3 Fair 6 Good 8 Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 26
24-08-2014 Exotic weeds are rampant on the west bank / verge. In-stream vegetation is patchy but reasonably good. Good 4 Fair 6 Fair 6 Good 4 Fair 6 Fair 26
21-07-2013 Banks have been cleared of some weeds, exposing some local erosion. Sandy sediment is accumulating in the stream bed. Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 24
26-08-2012 26 Aug 2012: Bank erosion has increased. Weeds have increased (tradescantia). In stream sediment (probably eroded from crushed rock pathways) is inhibiting in stream vegetation in some places Fair 3 Good 8 Fair 6 Good 4 Fair 6 Fair 27
21-08-2011 in stream cover was rated as a 5 Good 4 Good 8 Poor 4 Good 4 Good 8 Fair 28
