Tuggerah Schemes in Full Swing

Wyong Shire Council is continuing to carry out a number of projects in and around the Tuggerah Lakes to help improve the health of the estuary.

Council’s Waterways and Coastal Section Manager, Mr Luke Sulkowski, said that the Council has been able to do extra improvement works thanks to a $3.25 million funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program to help improve the health of Tuggerah Lakes.

The extra funding has helped us carry out extra works and studies to benefit the lakes,” Mr Sulkowski said.

This financial year works from the grant included building a wetland to improve the stormwater entering Tuggerah Lake at Long Jetty; enhancing Long Jetty foreshore; preliminary planning for streambank stabilization works at Lower Wyong River; and infrastructure to enhance and protect existing natural saltmarsh communities, to name a few.

“We are also continuing our wrack removal program and dredging The Entrance Channel as well as cleaning and upgrading our Gross Pollutant Traps (GPT) around the Shire,” he added.

An official opening of a newly constructed wetland at Long Jetty will be held on Monday, 2 November.
