TF11.5.2 Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan (EMP)
In 2016 the Queensland Government purchased Springvale Station, a 56,295ha property in Far North Queensland. Springvale Station was purchased to add to the State’s protected area network and complement activities being taken to reduce sediment run-off entering the Normanby River catchment, a significant catchment that drains to the northern Great Barrier Reef. As well as protecting the property’s important natural and cultural values, the ongoing management of Springvale Station coupled with activities on neighbouring properties will contribute to improving the water quality within the Normanby River catchment.
The Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan (EMP) and the supporting technical document titled Technical Report to the Springvale Station Erosion Management Plan were prepared by a team of experts and Traditional Owners, led by Cape York NRM and on behalf of the Department of Environment and Heritage Protection (EHP). The EMP will inform the future management planning and activities to be delivered on Springvale Station, as well as identifying potential investment and collaboration opportunities for erosion control on the property.
The objectives of the EMP are to:
• identify priority erosion remediation areas and guide activities undertaken on the property to reduce sediment run-off to the Normanby River catchment according to best practice management and scientific and technical standards
• ensure that remediation works carried out under the EMP will not compromise the property’s cultural and biophysical values
• identify monitoring and evaluation activities (in consultation with appropriate service providers) necessary to assess the efficacy and potential for replication of remediation techniques
