Update on South Lawson Park sediment control - 4 February 2022
Council is pleased to advise that improved sediment control measures at South Lawson Park have now been installed.
As the community will be aware, intense storms and persistent wet weather conditions over recent weeks presented a significant challenge to the initial sediment control measures at the site.
In response, over the last week a number of improvements have been put in place to strengthen sediment controls and safeguard the health of nearby waterways, including:
- Installing jute mesh on steep areas that have been disturbed
- Installation of sediment fencing along the entire riparian zone
- Installation of additional sediment fencing in many locations including at the base of disturbed areas where there are slopes.
In a number of parts of the site the Installation of jute mesh will continue into next week.
Consultation with bush regeneration and ecological professionals has also been scheduled for early next week, to start the process of remediating the old fairway lawn which was established over swampland.
Council and our contractors continue to closely monitor and assess the controls at the site.
We thank the community for their patience as we work to manage the impact of these recent unfavourable weather events.
