Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt and Federal Member for Dobell, Karen McNamara, today visited the Tuggerah Lakes estuary on the New South Wales Central Coast to inspect progress on infrastructure to improve water quality.

The Australian Government is delivering on its election commitments to take action and improve the health of this beautiful region and protect it from the impacts of pollution, weeds and urban population growth,” Minister Hunt said.

Karen McNamara is passionate about the Tuggerah Lakes and this funding has come about as a result of her strong advocacy.”

The Member for Dobell, Ms Karen McNamara, said she welcomed the announcement that Wyong Shire Council will receive $3.3 million over the next three years to help improve the water quality of the Tuggerah Lakes estuary.

“This funding will help upgrade stormwater treatment zones and gross pollutant traps including the removal of sediment and other organic matter and reprofiling the Canton Beach foreshore to recreate the natural beach shoreline,” Ms McNamara said.

“This is vital work that will be of benefit to both the environment and the local community.”

“The people of New South Wales’ Central Coast region care deeply about the Tuggerah Lakes.  This project builds on the great work previously undertaken by both the council and community groups in and around the Tuggerah Lakes area.

Tuggerah Lakes is one of five iconic waterways across Australia to share in more than $9 million of Coastal River Recovery funding.
