Fuel reduction works in Reedy Creek

Reedy Creek residents may have noticed the completion of some fuel reduction works along Reedy Creek Road.

Council has been working on the project in conjunction with a number of agencies including Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Country Fire Authority (CFA), Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA) and Dabyminga Landcare group.

Reedy Creek Road is rated high in terms of bushfire risk to the community.

To help reduce the overall bushfire risk, Council has conducted roadside fuel reduction works within an area that was identified by all stakeholders as having the highest fuel loads present.

The project complements the work by the Dabyminga Landcare Group along Reedy Creek to keep weeds and fuel loads managed to a reasonable level.

The completion of these works has reduced the overall roadside fuel levels in the area from extreme to high and will make it easier to maintain the roadside into the future.
