Summary:
Over the past two hundred years we have physically and biologically degraded many Australian streams. Catchment managers at the end of the millennium face two daunting tasks: how to minimise further damage to rivers and streams; and how to repair the damage that has already occurred. This manual is designed to help those professional managers who are accepting the challenge of rehabilitating the physical and  Read more...

Abstract:

Over the past two hundred years we have physically and biologically degraded many Australian streams. Catchment managers at the end of the millennium face two daunting tasks: how to minimise further damage to rivers and streams; and how to repair the damage that has already occurred. This manual is designed to help those professional managers who are accepting the challenge of rehabilitating the physical and biologcal condition of Australian streams. It has four sections covering the following main topics: 1. rehabilitation concepts; 2. a planning procedure for rehabilitating streams; 3. typical stream problems; and 4. a range of tools that could be useful for rehabilitation.
