Congewai and Quorrobolong Catchment Improvement Incentives Program

Hunter Local Land Services along with Hunter Water Corporation and Hunter Catchment Contributions is investing $200,000 in incentives funding over the next two years to landholders in the Congewai and Quorrobolong creek catchments.

Individual incentives can range from a minimum of $5,000 to $30,000.

The program will fund on ground works such as:

  • Fencing stock from areas
  • Native revegetation
  • Soil erosion control works
  • Installing off stream stock watering
  • Enhancing native vegetation through weed control
