GB CMA Support for Frontage Protection in the Fire Region

Wednesday 7 October 2009
The Goulburn Broken CMA is offering landholders an $8 subsidy per meter for fencing along waterways burnt in the February 2009 fires. Riparian land is critically important to river health, for soil stability, sediment and nutrient capture, as well as providing food and habitat for aquatic and terrestrial wildlife. River Health Team Leader for the Upper Goulburn Area, Christine Glassford, advises that "Recovery of vegetation along stream frontages following fire is even more crucial, given surface runoff is higher and faster, with greater capacity to move more soil and debris. Riparian land requires urgent protection to permit it time to recover unimpeded by impacts of stock."
