Work continued in the west Waratah Street area of the ecological restoration site, where wonderful natural regeneration of the native grasses is occurring. Along the track, intruding privet was managed. A fresh section of the area adjacent to the track was treated for privet, Japanese honeysuckle and assorted weedy herbs. In the swamp, J microcephalus was dug out, and seed bearing privet was cut down.

Streamwatch convenor reports good water quality in Lawson Creek tributary in ecological restoration area. Oxygen levels satisfactory. pH, phosphorous, turbidity and salt levels okay. Euastacus sp. present.
