TERRAIN NRM REEF TRUST IV GULLY REMEDIATION DESIGN

At a cattle station in the upper reaches of the Herbert River, Neilly Group Engineering undertook design of porous rock check dams proposed by Terrain NRM at the spillway of an historical abandoned tailings dam which had been undergoing significant sheet erosion. The aim of the works is to reduce the amount of fine sediment that is being exported from the abandoned tailings dam, which eventually makes its way to the Great Barrier Reef.

The works were funded under the Australian Government’s Reef Trust IV funding programme. The photograph shows the porous rock check dams during construction.
