ON THE LAND Pro­tect­ing wa­ter’s edge

Yarrawonga Chronicle - - Front Page - BY ROBERT MUIR

A 1.5km stretch of 100mm steel bol­lards fenc­ing with 16mm ca­ble through every 3m apart bol­lard is pro­tect­ing the wa­ter’s edge at Kyf­fin’s Re­serve Mul­wala.

The re­cently com­pleted project was a joint ven­ture by Goul­burn Mur­ray Wa­ter and Fed­er­a­tion Coun­cil. With campers, car­a­vans and ve­hi­cles away from the edge of Lake Mul­wala, the fenc­ing has helped en­hance the wet­land plants and birdlife in the area.

By en­cour­ag­ing the wet­land plants, this will help guard against ero­sion and pro­vide a mi­cro cli­mate for all species in­clud­ing Mur­ray Cod.

In late Au­gust 150 an­glers from var­i­ous clubs en­joyed the sur­rounds. Or­gan­iser Steve Mal­colm of Ber­ri­gan An­gling Club said it was great to see the area im­prov­ing and spoke pos­i­tively of the com­pleted works.
