Brief was to implement the Wetland Management Plan which involved removing substantial evasive weeds, car bodies and other material from the wetland. This proved a challenge given the volume of material and the escalating top fees.
The area then was to be revegetated with native trees shrubs and sedges. The project area backs on to a tributary to Lake Coogee.
We used excavators to extract and then windrow all the weeds and Juncus. These windrows then were mulched ensuring no top soil or soil carbon left the project area. This saved in $15-20,000 in cartage and tip fees.
The regermination of the weeds were sprayed, the site was ripped and mounded. PALS has monitored and maintained the project for the past 3 years. Hand over to the local council was successful with no defects.
