Revet-what?

Revet-what?

Log revetment is when logs are used to help protect river banks from erosion. Since 2007 it has become the most utilised technique for reducing erosion in parts of the River Murray.

We continue to work on protecting river banks from erosion between the Hume Dam and Lake Mulwala. New works in 2012–2013 consisted of log revetment, rock beaching (placing rocks on waterway banks), willow tree control, fencing and revegetation. A number of log jams and log fences were also constructed to prevent anabranch capture - a process which could lead to anabranches enlarging and capturing a larger proportion of river flow from the main channel. This can have significant implications for the environmental values of sections of the river.

Common reed (a tall perennial grass) was also used successfully at several sites to help stabilise river banks. The Hume to Lake Mulwala River Works Program is the largest of its kind in Australia, with more than $20 million invested to date. It has also resulted in increased knowledge including construction techniques, working with landholders and prescribing works based on site characteristics. The key learnings will be written as a journal paper and form the basis of a construction manual for small river works.

The program also refurbished access to a number of floodplain properties which are impacted when regulated releases from Hume Dam result in anabranches flowing all summer.

Farmer Brown can just cut a track to the river with the dozer and push the pesky callistomens out of his way.
