Blowering dam foreshore works hit $1.3 million, with more to come yet
State forest areas adjacent to the western foreshores of Blowering Dam will remain closed into 2021 following unprecedented damage caused by the Black Summer bushfires.
Rain and road damage have severely limited Forestry Corporation of NSW’s ability to undertake remediation around the Blowering Dam.
To date, Forestry Corporation has spent $1.3 million on repairing some of the devastation caused by the fire in the State forests next to Blowering Dam, with ongoing work set to continue well into 2021.
All up, there are over 170 kilometres of damaged roads needing repair just in the State forest next to Blowering Dam, this is longer than the road trip from Tumut to Gunning.
There also remains a high risk with dead trees continuing to fall.
