The catchment of Evans River is highly disturbed. Although three quarters of the catchment remains as forest, grazing, agricultural and urban development have resulted in significant modifications such as cleared land, and even to the river itself (i.e. a canal and weir). Forested areas occur mostly in the southern catchment and are managed in conservation areas and by private land holders.
