Reducing the Impact of Acid Sulfate Soil

Council and the University of NSW Water Research Laboratory (WRL) invite residents with an interest in improving the management of acid sulfate soils, water quality, pasture rehabilitation and agricultural production to an on site field demonstration at Berrys Bay.

Broughton Creek floodplain has been identified as an ‘acid hotspot’, and in order to improve the quality of soils on the floodplain, acid runoff from the surrounding land must be reduced.

Come along to the Field Day and find out how you can help improve soil and water quality in the floodplain area.

When: Friday, 28 July 2017, from 11am - 2pm. Parking available in Berrys Bay road.

Where: 1282 Bolong Road, Berrys Bay. Light refreshments will be provided.

Walking tour commences at 11am from the farm gate:

  • Auto tidal gate
  • Green waste fill
  • Levee construction
  • Kyowa bag trial
  • Water quality and habitat monitoring
  • Reed cutter bucket display

Dr Will Glamore (Associate Professor in the School of Civil and Environmental Engineering at WRL) will demonstrate the wetland acid sulfate soil model.

Project funded by the NSW Government and Shoalhaven City Council.
