Dredging of the Maria Creek Channel started on Thursday, 28 December, with approximately 5000 cubic meters of material removed so far, Kingston District Council said in their latest project update. 

It is estimated that a further 25,000 cubic meters remains within the channel which is expected to take a further four weeks or more to clear.

“Subject to favorable conditions, it is hoped that the Boat Ramp Facility will be re-opened sometime in February,” the council said.

The council recently received Environment Protection Authority (EPA) approval for the Dredging Management and Monitoring Plan (DMMP) for the Maria Creek cleanup scheme.

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