Great Lakes Council Plans Yaccaba Dredging Project (Australia)

Just as the dredging contractors packed up to leave Hawks Nest, Great Lakes Council has decided to recontract them to dredge another 17,000 cubic metres of sand from Yaccaba, says

Great Lakes Council’s Emergency Action Plan is supposed to stop the erosion eating into The Boulevarde at Winda Woppa.

The Office of Environment and Heritage has agreed to pay half of the dredging cost.

Myall River action group spokesman Gordon Grainger expressed concerns about the repeated dredging weakening the structure of the Yaccaba spit.
