Location: Mullon, New South Wales, Australia

GPS coordinates: 35.16326, 149.34108

Parameters: Progress on a series of research projects on 10,000 hectares of the Lower Mulloon watershed to reinstate alluvial hydration and to implement other sustainable farming practices

Prior to implementation: Significant reversal of channel and floodplain incision; reinstatement of chain-of- ponds system.

After implementation: Evidence that the project is “banking” water during higher flows and maintaining higher low flows when the weather is dry. Costs of flow-slowing installations assessed in terms of farm return.
