Mooball creek

Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

■ TWEED Shire Coun­cil has warned res­i­dents against try­ing to un­block the Mooball Creek mouth by them­selves. Com­mu­nity and Nat­u­ral Re­sources Act­ing Di­rec­tor Jane Loft­house said the NSW De­part­ment of Pri­mary In­dus­tries and Fish­eries sup­ported min­i­mal in­ter­fer­ence with creek mouth sand bar­ri­ers. “If not done prop­erly and un­der the right con­di­tions, there is a real pos­si­bil­ity open­ing up the creek with ma­chin­ery or by hand dig­ging could make the prob­lem worse,” she said. The max­i­mum penalty for unau­tho­rised works to open a closed es­tu­ary is $220,000 for coun­cils and $110,000 for in­di­vid­u­als.
