The MRE is classified as a wave-dominated estuary, which has 82% of its catchment cleared for agriculture (1999 data) resulting in high nutrient levels. Despite this level of clearing, the MRE has good riparian vegetation communities, due in part by continued management and revegetation efforts by community and landcare groups; Flow in the MRE is maintained by significant groundwater inflow, although decreasing rainfall in the region is reducing flushing. At present here is little urban development in the catchment but the Guilderton community is very concerned about urban development pressure on the southern bank of the estuary.
