Dredging Update


We have been pressing upon the City of Mandurah to dredge the northern entrance to the Port Mandurah canals as a matter of urgency.
We learn from Cr. Peter Rogers that on Tuesday night Council approved expenditure for the dredging of the Port Mandurah northern entrance and also the entrance to the Mandurah Ocean Marina.
Find out more here.

CEO Mark Newman has since provided us with a full update: "The contractor is currently mobilising their plant and equipment to the Mary Street lagoon site whilst contracts are being enacted and requisite works approvals being sought.

At this stage it is planned to commence works in the week beginning 29 October. The first stage will be to cut a 25 metre wide channel at the entrance to the canal opening and marina opening. Officers are continuing to pursue appropriate contractors to undertake dredging along the sides of the canal walls as it requires different equipment."

Snakes Alive!
The Samphire Cove Nature Reserve on the edge of Port Mandurah is looking great with the All-Abilities Interpretative Trail having just been resurfaced. It has also been beautiful weather for growing both the plants and the weeds!
The next get-together to clean up, weed and sweep the paths is this Sunday
28th October at 9.00am, followed by a BYO morning tea at 10.30am.

A few of the regular workers won't be available this month, so if you could help out it would be much appreciated. Please wear protective clothing including gloves, and bring a weeding tool and mozzie repellent.
Note that there are snakes on the reserve, so please take care!
There are also 22 known exotic wading birds that visit the cove between October and March. If you're a bird watcher, find out more here.
