Upper Murrumbidgee Habitat Review

Project: Research

Project Details


The aim of this project is to conduct a review of lower-cost and lower-tech fish habitat restoration options for sand affected river reaches that are applicable to the Upper Murrumbidgee River. The project also needs to make recommendations about which options may be most suitable. The purpose of the habitat improvement options to be investigated through this project is to reduce
the impact on instream sedimentation and/or improve habitat complexity with a focus on fish and the ecological functions on which they depend. Proposed options should not have significant impacts on other important values.

This work will form Stage 1 of the ‘Improving habitat complexity in sand affected streams’ project, the outcomes of which will be used to inform Stage 2 of the project that will work to trial the most suitable options as identified through this scope of work.

The objectives for this project are outlined below.
• To provide the UMDR with a review of the current state of knowledge of options to improve ecological functioning and habitat complexity in sand affected streams.
• To provide recommendations on the habitat improvement options that would be most suitable for the Upper Murrumbidgee River.
