Reedy Creek fuel reduction works prepare for fire season
Reedy Creek residents may have noticed some fuel reduction works along the length of Reedy Creek road and within an identified area across from the local CFA station, to help reduce the overall bushfire risk. These works have now been completed and the outcome will be beneficial to Reedy Creek residents in the upcoming fire season.
Council has been working on this project in partnership with a number of agencies including Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), Country Fire Authority (CFA), Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA), Taungurung Land & Waters Council and Dabyminga Landcare group.
Reedy Creek Road is rated high in terms of bushfire risk to the community. 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.
The project complements the work by the Dabyminga Landcare Group along Reedy Creek to keep weeds and fuel loads managed to a reasonable level.
