The Systems Repair team at Catchment Solutions in Mackay takes a big picture approach to landscape management throughout Queensland by working closely with regional governments and industry to coordinate actions across a range of land management activities.
From water quality improvement to landscape rehabilitation, wetland construction, fishways and more – this important work adds value to the catchment, community and business.
Clients benefit by ensuring the impacts of everything they do is monitored, minimised and mitigated, offering ultimate transparency, accountability and a solid foundation for demonstrating corporate social and environmental responsibility.
The Systems Repair team works across a wide range of areas to maximise and amplify the benefits and long-term outcomes of projects.
Common activities undertaken across the region as part of Systems Repair approach include:
• The implementation of constructed wetlands, wetland rehabilitation & bio-retention/sediment basin systems to improve water quality run-off from agricultural lands and provide important habitat and refuge for biodiversity.
• The construction of fishways to facilitate aquatic connectivity between upstream waterways, constructed wetlands and downstream estuarine ecosystems.
• Bank stabilisation structures such as engineered log jams to stabilise stream banks, reduce sediment delivery and restore and repair waterholes and in-stream habitat.
• Planting of endemic riparian species to increase terrestrial connectivity, reduce sediment delivery and improve habitat condition.
