Title A hydraulic, environmental and ecological assessment of a sub-tropical stream in eastern Australia: Eprapah Creek, Victoria Point QLD
Abstract/Summary Eprapah Creek is a small sub-tropical stream in Eastern Australia. Located in the Redlands shire close to Brisbane QLD, the stream flows from Mount Cotton to Thornlands, where it enters Moreton Bay. The catchment is mostly urban in the lower reaches and semi rural/rural residential in the upper reaches. The creek also flows through several conservation areas hosting endangered species. The stream is basically 15 km long with about 3.8 km of estuarine zone. The Victoria Point sewage treatment plant discharges into the estuarine reach approximately 2.6 km from its mouth. On Friday 4th April 2003, a series of detailed hydraulic, environmental and ecological measurements were conducted in Eprapah Creek (Victoria Point QLD). The purpose of the field works was to assess the complexity of a small estuarine system, the interactions between hydraulic engineering, biology and ecology, and also an overall assessment of the estuarine system that was heavily polluted four to five years ago (1).
