Abstract

A case study of the Avon River in Gippsland, southeastern Australia, demonstrates the impacts of commercial sand and gravel extraction from alluvial rivers. The Avon River has a long history of channel instability related in part to its recent change of course by avulsion and in part to destabilization driven by human activities in the channel. This paper reviews the complexity of the gravel extraction issue and the importance of regulatory administration in river management
