26 Jun Natural flows return for the first time in decades to a new section of creekline at Glenshera Swamp, near Mount Compass
Regular readers will be familiar with NGT’s ongoing hydrological restoration work at Glenshera Swamp, on the Fleurieu Peninsula near Mount Compass.
In the previous newsletter we described recent work completed to backfill an artificial drain that was denying flow to a natural, meandering creekline that formerly carried water into the heart of Glenshera Swamp, a short distance downstream. It turns out we completed this work just in the nick of time, because good autumn and early winter rainfall has caused this seasonal creek to start flowing just a few weeks later.
So you now get to enjoy these before and after comparisons!
