In 2014 the Soil Conservation Service (SCS) Urban Creeks Unit, won the IECA Australasia Environmental Excellence Award for Innovation, Contribution and Education to the erosion and sediment control industry for stream rehabilitation and stabilisation works around the Newcastle area.

This workshop and creek walk will give you the opportunity to hear from Karenne Jurd of Newcastle City Council (Asset Program Coordinator - Environment Infrastructure Planning) and Dan Brown of SCS; who will explain the rehabilitation process works utilised at Ironbark / Blue Wren Creek Elermore Vale.

The day will begin with a workshop session where you will be presented with illustrations of the site before work began and how the team dealt with erosion and sediment control issues. After lunch, Michael Frankcombe from IECA Australasia will present on stream processes, natural channel design concepts and revegetation.

You will then have the opportunity to walk along the creek to view the completed work and discuss with Dan, Karenne and Michael all aspects of stream rehabilitation.

This is a great opportunity to learn about stream rehabilitation including erosion and sediment control practices employed before, during and after the works.

The rehabilitation works are ongoing with downstream stretches of Blue Wren Creek currently being worked on.
