Nambucca River Dredging Plans on the Table

Nambucca Shire Council is now considering options to dredge the lower estuary of the Nambucca River.

The Council recently received a report from consultants GHD on their investigation of shoaling in the Nambucca River Lower Estuary.

The report also sets out a potential dredging strategy.

The purpose of this report is to provide councillors with the opportunity to read the GHD report and provide any comments to staff.

It is also proposed to refer the report to Council’s Estuary Committee for their formal consideration.

Following consideration by the Estuary Committee the matter would be again reported to Council for a final determination as to a possible maintenance dredging strategy.

Given that Council enters into the caretaker period on Friday, 12 August, the final determination of a strategy will be a matter for the new Council post the September 10 election.
