FIRE CLEAN UP PROJECT COM­PLETE

Harvey-Waroona Reporter - - SEA TO SCARP -

Fol­low­ing the 2016 Wa­roona and Yar­loop fire, the Shire of Wa­roona was granted fund­ing from the Depart­ment of Premier and Cab­i­net which was in­tended to as­sist with var­i­ous ac­tiv­i­ties re­lated to fire re­cov­ery. A large pro­por­tion of that fund­ing was used in clean up and restora­tion works to over 50 prop­er­ties in the Shires of Wa­roona and Har­vey. The project, which com­menced in March of this year, in­volved var­i­ous con­trac­tors be­ing engaged by the Shire of Wa­roona to carry out works on be­half of the af­fected landown­ers, in­clud­ing gen­eral clean up works, push­ing up of de­stroyed fences and dead veg­e­ta­tion and restora­tion of dam­age caused by fire­fight­ing ef­forts. The last of the work was com­pleted in mid-June. The works were the sec­ond round of clean up works with a smaller yet more in­ten­sive pro­gram tak­ing place in late 2017. This was a com­plex lo­gis­ti­cal project and the Shire of Wa­roona greatly ap­pre­ci­ates the ef­forts of all in­volved.
