Bodkin Park – North Lake Dredging About to Begin

The Water Corporation’s contractor, Dredging Solutions, will be carrying out dredging works at Bodkin Park North Lake from Wednesday, June 12th, the South Perth City Council said in its latest announcement.

The works will be completed by Friday, 21 June 2019, with the dewatering tube to be removed by 30 September 2019, the council said.

According to the officials, the majority of work will be completed between 7am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

This work is being undertaken for drainage operation and maintenance purposes, however it is envisaged this work will also support future water quality planned outcomes and ultimately the amenity of the surrounding area.

These outcomes align with the Bodkin Park north lake and living stream project which is being delivered in conjunction with the City of South Perth and the South East Regional Centre for Urban Landcare.

The public open space near the corner of Templemore Gardens and Hanover Place will be used to construct a sand bund to house a dewatering tube used as part of the dredging process.

The sediments removed from the basin will be pumped into this dewatering tube and the area will be fenced off from the public.
