Commuting Hills

The remaining extent of forest in the Commuting Hills SES contributes to healthy river ecosystems, which ideally provide constant yields of filtered high quality water down the catchment.

Threats to waterways in this SES largely relate to runoff and water quality.

Waterways are classified as being in good condition, however, water yield and quality has been influenced by recent bushfires.  Invasive species, including European carp, also threaten water quality in this SES. 

Priority Waterways include:

Mollisons Creek, King Parrot Creek, Yea River, Goulburn River
