Maria Creek Dredging About to Begin

Kingston District Council recently received Environment Protection Authority (EPA) approval for Council’s Dredging Management and Monitoring Plan (DMMP) for the Maria Creek.

It is anticipated that excavation and dredging works will begin on Wednesday, 27th December 2017, reported the Council.

The reason for the commencement date being Wednesday, 27th December 2017, is due to collection of mandatory baseline water testing data which is required to be completed 7 days prior to dredging works as per the DMMP, added the Council.

A road closure will be in place from Friday 22nd December 2017 to exclude vehicles and pedestrians from a portion of Marine Parade and adjacent reserves (being from the northern side of the boat wash down bay to the Maria Creek boat launching facility) whilst excavation and dredging works are taking place,” the Council said.

To assist recreational fishers launching from the beach, Council has cleared sand build up at the following access points, Pinks Beach, Wyomi Beach, Johnson Avenue, Sailing Club, Thredgolds, Toops Road and Long Beach.
