Known as the Wetland Rehabilitation Project – Reinstating
Wetting and Drying Regimes, this is one of the first projects
of its type in Australia. The Lower Murray-Darling Catchment
Management Authority engaged GHD to investigate, design and
implement rehabilitation works to restore flood flows and fish
passage to approximately 700ha of wetlands.
The team investigated wetland ecosystems to
identify environmental values, then used this information to
propose works and complementary land management activities aimed at
achieving specific rehabilitation objectives for each wetland. The
process involved flora, fauna and aquatic assessments, grazing
pressure and land management assessments, indigenous cultural
heritage assessments, and hydrologic-hydraulic simulation of
proposed water regime options.
