The recent heavy rains have caused some local erosion at the bank.
More sand is accumulating in the stream beds and apparently smothering the in-stream vegetation at the upstream sites (1a, 1b).
The pit controlling flow into the wetlands at site 4 remains blocked by sand. The rain in the past week has not been enough to flow over the pit, and there is no flow through the wetlands ponds (low flows are escaping via the high flow bypass pipe).
The visual appearance of all sites is good, with increasing vegetation on the banks. Accumulations of litter are confined to a few locations such as the safety fence adjacent to Blackburn Rd. Cloudiness of the water is a continual problem (on this occasion, coming from the Fiander arm).
