This report was initiated at the request of the Neridup Soil Conservation Group as an aid to overcoming the degradation problems of the catchment known as the Neridup Creek Catchment.Work was commenced on collecting data about the catchment in May 1990 and has continued on a part-time basis as workload has permitted. This report outlines the physical details of the catchment, predicts runoff peak flows and contains recommendations as a framework for stable land use within the catchment.Attached to this report are: a set of maps of physical details, a set of plans related to individual degradation problems requiring solutions and two Land Management Plans completed as examples of intergrating this report's recommendations.The solutions to the degradation problems of the Neridup Creek Catchment lie in Land Management Planning for individual properties. The recommendatios of this report can be incorporated into these plans. Individual Land Management Plans will need to be finalized by the landholders but any design work for drainage, contouring or waterway defining will need to be done by the Department of Agriculture. Landcare technicians,contractors, surveyors or consultants can implement the designs on site with additional help from the Department of Agriculture where necessary.
