APEM Scientific Report P00000410
Mitigation: Cattle poaching – Redirection of runoff from the poached area directly down the field would minimise the delivery of pollutants onto the road and then into the watercourse. Stockproofing away from this area would reduce the mobilization of sediment. Avoiding feed area or drink trough location in this location. Feasibility – Excavation of small swale with stock proofing feasible with good engagement with the farmer. Soil structure investigation is unlikely to be progressed even if compaction is identified.
