Release

Central Coast Council has welcomed the announcement of $3 million funding for the Tuggerah Lakes Estuary.

Council has a long history of working to improve the health of the Tuggerah Lakes system.

Council’s Administrator, Mr Ian Reynolds said the funding would build on the work Council was already doing to improve the health of the catchment and reduce pollution.

“This financial year alone, we will build 11 gross pollutant traps, four of which received federal funding, on the shores of Tuggerah Lake,” Mr Reynolds said.

“This additional funding will allow us to build on the work already done, focus on our foreshores and put some much needed attention into the catchment areas.

“We welcome the opportunity to work with all levels of government in improving the health of the Tuggerah Lakes catchment so that future generations can enjoy our amazing estuary.”
