- A site of prior CMA investment is damaged or under threat (eg, pile fields, rock beaching)
- Debris in the waterway impacting of waterway health (eg, tree blocking river)
- General river health issues.
Please note that issues relating to public infrastructure should be reported directly to the appropriate authority.
