Soil erosion (by water); watercourse, gully, sheet and rill erosion associated with steep terrain, high rainfall events and lack of soil cover (likely to be exacerbated under climate change).
Impacts of the issue
Increased nutrient loads and turbidity in streams, affecting water quality and condition of aquatic habitats, including Fleurieu swamps.
- Lack of cover (especially summer cover)
- Associated with high rainfall events
