Wetlands Rehabilitation Seagrove Estate

Bass Coast Shire Council will begin wetland and raingarden rehabilitation works at Seagrove Estate Cowes, early this month.

This project aims to protect the natural eco systems of the estate.

The wetland and raingardens in stages one through to three will be rehabilitated at a cost to Council at an estimated $200,000.00.

These works are due for completion by late June 2018, weather permitting.

The rehabilitation works will include:

• Removal of sediment from wetland ponds.

• Revegetation of wetland areas.

• Removal of sediment from raingardens.

• Re-establishment of raingardens.

• Re-vegetation of raingardens.

We appreciate that these works may present an inconvenience to all users within this section of Seagrove Estate. Residents can be kept up to date with the project by visiting Council website or contacting Council on 1300 BCOAST (226 278) or (03) 5671 2211.
