In past times there has been an
abundance of wildlife including
frogs eels, other fish platypus
Some of the older residents in the
area have fond memories of dropping
a line in to catch "tiddlers".
Weed Infestations include;
cumbungi , hawthorn , blackberry
gorse ,crack willows , dock
Even after the River Works Funding ,
Waterwatch has delivered a report to Council,
naming the Rivulet as one of the dirtiest in the city.
Weed infestations continue to be out of control.
The Launceston City Council would appear
to have no active policy of containing the spread
of any of the weeds that are prevalent along the Rivulet.
The adjacent Schouten Industrial Estate
would be responsible for the spread of most of the weeds
onto the Riparian Strip,yet Council takes no action
to insist that a weed eradication programme
be put into place on this site.
