ACE is creating a network of sediment traps. Documenting, recording and analysising all aspects.
Creating a reasource that allows landholders and farmers to see what's possible and what's out there. From the most simple to complex of sediment trap designs ACE hopes that this resource will provide a place to start when buiding your own Sediment trap. Cost, mitigations, results. Comparable with your land, farm type and practice.
Starting with six sediment traps across the different catchment groups. They will be constructed with expert guidance within the Aparima FMU investigated to determine the locations that would achieve the best results for placement of these sediment traps.
