Description

Not only does the river suffer the impacts of poor farming practices such as excessive land clearing, overgrazing and vehicle off-roading. Irresponsible Mining practices, which can include run off of industrial toxic waste has detrimental effects on the wildlife and fauna. The River also has to contend with the natural elements such as climate change which greatly effects salinity, water quality and quantity, bushfires and weeds. The river is prone to flooding, when this occurs the natural shape of the river is altered when parts of the river edging are swept away, species of plants are swept away along with animals and their habitats.
