The Tuross Head Boat Ramp in Lavender Bay and the Quota Boat Ramp in Narooma will benefit from a share in up to $37,500 in funding for dredging, thanks to support from the NSW Liberals & Nationals Government.

Member for Bega, Andrew Constance, said that under the ‘Rescuing our Waterways’ program, Eurobodalla Shire Council would receive $37,500 for the dredging works, which council are also matching dollar-for-dollar.

Dredging at the Tuross Boat Ramp will remove the build-up of sand near the boat ramp to improve access into the lake for fishermen and others using this beautiful waterway,” Mr Constance said.

“In Narooma, the dredging at the Quota Boat Ramp is in response to requests from the local fishing club to improve access from this popular location into Wagonga Inlet.

“The dredging will benefit recreational and commercial boat users, and emergency response vessels.”

Eurobodalla Mayor, Liz Innes, said that the matched funding from the NSW Government recognized the vital role boating and marine infrastructure played for Eurobodalla residents and the shire’s 1.3 million annual visitors.

It’s fantastic to see the NSW Government support our ratepayers in meeting the demands of our visitors, who are fundamentally important to our economic development and employment in Eurobodalla,” said Cr Innes.

Minister for Lands and Forestry, Paul Toole, added that dredging projects allow for the best use of waterways.

The program forms part of the NSW Coastal Dredging Strategy with the next round of funding to open early 2019. A further $1.5 million will be made available to councils on a matching dollar-for-dollar basis.
