Nepean River to be partially restored
Nepean River is set to be restored in parts of Camden after Council accepted a total of $154,000 in funding recently.
A fish habitat is set to be installed at Nepean River in Spring Farm as part of the NSW Government’s Habitat Action Grant program.
Preventative erosion measures to stabilise sections of the Nepean River will also take place along the Nepean River Cycleway and Rotary Cowpasture Reserve as part of funding from the NSW Government’s Environmental Trust Restoration and Rehabilitation Grant Program.
Mayor of Camden, Cr Therese Fedeli, said it was important to continue taking care of the local environment.
“Camden is lucky enough to be surrounded by the beautiful environment and Nepean River is one of the most important aspects of our area,” Cr Fedeli said.
“Restoring a part of the river will not only be fantastic for the environment but will also allow locals to explore and enjoy what we have in our own backyard.
“I’d like to thank the NSW Government for their funding for the project and look forward to seeing its completion.”
The project will also restore the Critically Endangered Ecological Community, River-flat Eucalypt Forest, through woody weed control and revegetation with native species including the nationally threatened Camden White Gum.
