[Extract] Description of the Implications of the Bilwon Weir Proposal The proposed weir development has the potential to inundate the Barron River channel (100 m wide and 10 m deep) up to 9 km from the weir site. The maximum land resumption and inundation would occur nearest to the weir itself. In addition there is the potential for altered environmental flows downstream. The implications of this proposal for the terrestrial fauna and habitats of the area include: the loss of native vegetation and habitat; the disruption of a riparian wildlife corridor and refuge; the direst displacement and loss of native fauna species; and an increase in the action of threatening processes (weed invasion, erosion, feral animal invasion) on the remaining species and habitat on the area.
