There has been a 'slight' change to the start of the scheduled Lake Jindabyne Foreshore repair works.
Due to the current lake level, and as advised by Snowy Hydro Limited (SHL), the lake will not be low enough to start the repair works as planned on February 17.
The lowest lake level can be expected late March/early April which is when the Snowy River Shire Council now intends to start the work.
The council wishes to emphasize to the community that the new timeframe will still provide enough time to complete the Banjo Paterson Park end by Easter, allowing a site cleanup and removal of fencing, machinery and equipment. Staff will then return after the Easter period to complete the caravan park end.
This slight change in timing is not expected to affect our Easter tourism period nor the Lakelight Sculpture event, with staff moving in, completing the Banjo Paterson Park end of the Lake and then returning after Easter to complete the caravan park end.
"It is important for the Lake to be at its lowest possible level for the work to be undertaken, both for pollution purposes and to allow it to be the most cost effective option," the council General manager Joe Vescio said.
