Technical Report to the Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan

The Technical Report to the Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan was produced as part of the Springvale Erosion Management Plan (EMP) Project in 2017.

The Springvale Erosion Management Plan Project was funded through the Queensland Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (now known as the Department of Environment and Science (DES)) and produced two final reports:

  • Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan (DES, 2018) download

  • Technical Report to the Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan (Higham et al., 2017) download

The Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan presents a summary of the recommended implementation approaches for reducing sediment loss from Springvale Station (www.qld.gov.au/environment/coasts-waterways/catchment-management/springvale-station ).

The Technical report to the Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan presents an introduction to the Springvale Erosion Management Plan Project as well as four technical reports that were produced by the multi organisational project team as part of the Springvale Erosion Management Plan Project:

  • Desktop Cultural Heritage analysis

  • Broad soil erosion assessment

  • Desktop land condition analysis

  • Erosion Management Plan to guide 2017 to 2022 actions.

These four reports represent the technical source material used in the production of the Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan.
