2015-12-01Following the obtaining of approval from the Registered Aboriginal Party, and after consulting AAV, and provided these areas aren't part of another survey, undertake further archaeological surveys in the rural part of the catchment: - Merri Creek from Hernes Swamp north to the top of the catchment, - other tributaries of the Merri Creek including Malcolm, Aitken, Kalkallo, Wallan, and Taylors Creeks and - other sites likely to possess archaeological finds (eg. alluvial terraces as in Rosengren, 1993). Surveys should include mapping areas of sensitivity, and provide this mapping to MCMC and relevant Councils. (Ellender 1997b Rec 21)MCMC AAVHSB WTLCCHC$$Medium
