Murrindindi Shire Council wishes to advise that works will be commencing within the bed and banks of UT Creek and are planned for completion prior to Christmas.

The rock gabion wall adjacent to the historic miners cottage will be repaired. The gravel deposit and woody debris, which was carried downstream after the last heavy rainfall, will be removed between the Grant Street bridge and the footbridge at Jack Shield’s garden. The works will not affect pedestrian use of either bridge.

Council has obtained a ‘works in waterways’ permit from Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GBCMA) and has received some grant funding from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to carry out the repair works.
