Reducing the impact of road crossings on aquatic habitat in coastal waterways - Northern Rivers, NSW : report to the New South Wales Environment Trust

"The highly modified nature of catchments in the Northern Rivers region presents many challenges in the way we protect the environment and manage its natural resources. In particular, setting goals and targets for aquatic habitat conservation in the region requires clear understanding of the extent of aquatic habitat degradation and where we can achieve the best outcomes ... Detailed environmental assessments were conducted for over 2500 waterway crossings in the Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority region, with identified barriers prioritised in terms of their impact on aquatic biodiversity, benefits should the structure be remediated, and the ease of structural remediation. Additionally, management recommendations were put forth to remediate the barrier type(s) at each structure."--Page iii
