Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

The major component of the stormwater capture and re-use works at Ridge Park is nearly completed and the park is ready to be re-opened to the public.

Temporary fencing that currently quarantines the work site  is to be removed on Monday and Tuesday next week and full park access will then  become available again.
There is still commissioning and testing of the pump and filtration equipment underway which results in varying water levels across the three ornamental ponds but we expect to achieve set levels and continuously trickling water between the ponds in the next few weeks.
This continues the water sustainability policy that council has been progressing for a number of years
