Stonequarry Creek Clean Up Continues

Posted on: 19.12.2017

As part of ongoing work at Stonequarry Creek, Picton, leading up to Christmas Council’s contractors are removing more woody vegetation within the creek banks upstream and downstream from the bridge at Argyle Street.

The focus is to remove vegetation that may create snags or inhibit water flow during high rain events. This work follows on from a series of clean ups which have been undertaken along the banks of the creek throughout the year.

Council’s Director Infrastructure & Environment, Michael Malone said, “Council is continuing its endeavour to appropriately manage Stonequarry Creek, to minimize the potential obstructions in the watercourse.”

The works are endorsed in the Soil Conservation Services report on Stonequarry Creek and are being undertaken in accordance with Council’s Stonequarry Creek Vegetation Management Plan.
