Take no risks with erosion

LANDHOLDERS are urged to take measures now to avoid the risk of soil erosion by storm run-off and flooding.

QMDC soil conservation project officer Vanessa MacDonald said there were steps landholders could take, including maintaining stubble or ground cover, removing silt from channels, and preparing waterways and roads.

She said waterways were prone to erosion because of concentrated flows they needed to accommodate.
