Developed and implemented physical condition assessments of built and natural foreshores within the Swan and Canning estuarine systems between 2005 and 2020. The initial evaluation covered more than 240km of foreshore, and supported the Foreshore Assessment and Management Strategy (SRT 2007).
Ongoing assessments provide a technical basis to support strategic allocation of Riverbank Program funding, with due consideration of appropriate stabilisation or management options and maintenance requirements. Each asset was rated for condition and consequence using defined physical criteria, forming the basis for an overall risk rating. Repeated assessment using the same techniques, with focus on assets at higher risk, provides a basis for prioritising foreshore rehabilitation.
