Considerably greater residual stream pool depths in cease‐to‐flow periods, with pool water storage volumes quadrupled, and an increase in aquatic habitat.
Prior to implementation
Enhanced stream bench development, with channel narrowing, accelerated by active recruitment of in-stream rheophytes such as Casuarina cunninghamiana. enhanced localised channel‐floodplain hydrological connectivity in coarse-grained sediments - important for restoring hyporheic function.
Indicated improvements in soil organic matter levels & cation-exchange capacity.
