What it contains

Following a period of intense drought, bushfires in January to February 2003 burnt over one million hectares of north-east Victoria, the largest fires seen in over 60 years. To further our knowledge of the role fire plays in shaping the Australian landscape, the State Bushfire Recovery Task Force commissioned EPA Victoria to assess the effects of the 2003 bushfires on the health of our rivers and to monitor the recovery of river life.
