Summary

The throughflow has been released into the creek. The throughflow comes past the "strainer" to the tractor. A barrier near the edge of the creek has directed moisture along the "flat" causing bare patches and "barley grass". Note the colour change in the grass. Waterlogging caused by barriers have killed off these Salmon Gum trees in the background. Is there any point in planting more trees without moisture control?
