Dry Creek Restoration

Ecodynamics is contracted to undertake sensitive rehabilitation works to multiple sections of Dry Creek within the City of Tea Tree Gully.  The works are being undertaken to restore erosion damage to sections of the river and provide long term erosion protection, bank stabilisation and revegetation activities.  Local provenance plants are being grown and supplied by our own SA nursery for planting in 2015 and maintenance will run for 18months post completion.
Our works involve;

  • Realignment of the creek
  • Laying back, cutting and controlled filling of banks
  • Significant rock beaching and creek toe reinforcement
  • Typha removal
  • Working adjacent to and protecting sensitive remnant native grass areas
  • Significant tree root protection
  • Jute matting
  • Natural log placement
  • Fence construction along the foot of the river to trap sediment and material to provide bank toe protection

Our work has been undertaken quickly to a high standard whilst maintaining a very low environmental impact from the large scale machinery being used to undertake the works. 

This work highlights Ecodynamics' ability to carry out Natural Resource Management / Waterway Restoration projects.
