Australia: Bonville Creek Dredging Moves Ahead

The project aimed to bring the normalization of the Bonville Creek water flow is moving forward, reports

This morning, the mouth of Bonville Creek welcomed a few excavators, which are dredging the silt that was causing increased creek depths.

The Department of Primary Industries (DPI) recently warned residents of coastal communities that excavating the entrances of lakes, lagoons and intermittently opening creeks can have long lasting and severe consequences for fish and fish habitat.

DPI Director of Fisheries Compliance, Glenn Tritton, said the warning comes after a channel was recently dug out by shovels at the mouth of Bonville Creek in an attempt to open up the creek.
