Project Summary

  • Salvinia weed spreads violently through spring and summer time. A fish passageway installed by DEEDI was quickly being clogged by this noxious weed.
  • Located in Bundaberg, a site evaluation followed by the installation of a Chatoyer Weed Boom has prevented the flow of salvinia into the fish passageway while letting the fish still pass through with the boom installed has allowed the waterway system to resume operation.
