Program to improve condition of Tilba Tilba Lake underway

Local Land Services (LLS) recently invited members of the local community interested in the ongoing improvement of the Tilba Tilba Lake catchment to an information session at Tilba Small Hall

Sonia Bazzacco, LLS Land Services Officer on the Far South Coast, was excited to share their plans with the community.

“This event was a great opportunity for members of the local community to come along and learn a bit more about the Tilba Tilba Lake catchment, the issues it faces and the research that is underway to better understand, and hopefully, rectify those issues.”

The project work being undertaken by LLS is targeting properties on the lake itself and on nearby Victoria Creek.

“We’re having discussions with a number of land managers in the Tilba Tilba Lake catchment area and there are a number of projects already underway.

“We’ve recently been planting trees in riparian corridors around Victoria Creek, the community is very excited about the outcomes for their local environments.

“The night featured talks from researchers from the NSW Office Environment and Heritage (OEH) who have recently started collecting data in the lake and saltmarsh foreshores prior to remediation works commencing in the catchment later this year.

“It is really excellent to have the OEH researchers bringing their skills and expertise to the project,” Ms Bazzacco said.

The work being undertaken across the catchments in the South East is funded by the NSW Government’s Marine Estate Management Strategy.

For more information about the community session held at Tilba, the priority catchments or the grant funding please contact Sonia Bazzacco on 0429 998 585. Funding is available for priority catchments and landowners who are interested in the project are encouraged to contact South East Local Land Services' office on 64917800.
