Management of water resources in the Avon River basin is a high priority under the Avon Catchment Council’s natural resource management (NRM) strategy and investment plans (Avon Catchment Council, 2005 a, b). Through the Avon Rivercare project, the Department of Water has begun to investigate the riparian condition and management needs of waterways in the Avon River basin within the zone of ancient drainage. The Lower Yilgarn River project is the second of these waterway assessments, following on from the Salt River study (Department of Water, 2008).
