The NSW Government have announced their support for the dredging of the eastern channel of the lower Myall River today.
This has been called after five years of lobbying over concerns about the high number of bacterial infections from the river.

Member for Port Stephens, Craig Baumann,

says funding has already been put towards this important project.

‘The State Government is providing $1 million and then they are negotiating with the Local Governments to see what they can contribute.’

The project is expected to start in about four months and will help benefit the tourism, local business and industry of Tea Gardens.
