“Sunnydale” Erosion Field Trip
Presenter | Paul Theakston
The field trip will explore the common erosion issues with ground tanks and ways to address the erosion while maximising water quality and quantity. Erosion associated with ground tanks is a common issue and impacts water quality and quantity and adversely impacts the productivity of the surrounding landscape. The field trip will visit a ground tank that had erosion issues which have been addressed using soil conservation works. The works have resulted in more water harvested and a stable catchment.
Participants will have a good understanding of common erosion issues with ground tanks, the causes of these issues and ways to control erosion while maximising water quality and quantity.
