Welcome water way flush
GAWLER'S waterways are set to
receive a welcome flush out, with
$100,000 allocated towards improv-
ing the health of the region's river
Gawler Council has developed the
Gawler Rivers Urban Master Plan, which
outlines goals to improve the town's urban
waterways, with a focus on the protection
of river health, the conservation of biodi-
versity and the provision of an intercon-
nected and accessible parkland network.
Council chief executive Henry Inat said
funding had already been allocated to-
wards the project.
"We have been successful in receiving
$50,000 each year from the Adelaide and
Mount Lofty Ranges Natural Resource
Management Board, plus council's in-
vestment of $50,000 (matching 50/50),
over the next four years to implement the
plan," he said.
"More recently, council has resolved to
form a working group to assist in address-
ing the erosion and degradation occurring
along the Gawler River, North Para and
South Para River environment."
The Working Group will feature two
elected members, two council staff, one
natural resource management representa-
tive and three community representatives.
Mr Inat said council was seeking an in-
terested community member to join the
"We are seeking a community-minded
person, (who is) passionate about our
environment and would like to contrib-
ute to the protection and rehabilitation
of the riparian zone of the Gawler Urban
Rivers," he said.
"Then council encourages the commu-
nity to read the information provided on
our website and submit an application.
"This project will run for four years
and is a collaboration between the Ad-
elaide and Mount Lofty Ranges Natural
Resource Management Board and the
Town of Gawler."
