Storm Water Management Workshop with Craig Sponholtz

WHAT’S HAPPENING:

Barron Catchment Care together with RegenAG‘s erosion mitigation expert Craig Sponholtz of Watershed Artisans, are holding a one day workshop in Mareeba.

Craig will work with earthmoving contractors to install a series of one rock dams and zuni bowls to convert a problematic table drain that is causing erosion into a functional water management solution that fits as an attractive part of the scenery.
