‘Illegal water dam’ on local creek?

Our girls asked to go to the creek on the weekend. It’s disappeared since the waist deep water some of you got to enjoy with us on Australia Day.

From the Facebook page of a Coffs Coast local.

A short wander up the dry creek bed lead to the discovery of a 6 foot high dirt wall damming Dundoo Creek.

The new blueberry farm has put in a new access road and have a pump house, hoses and a ‘genny’ at the creek sending water up to their green houses.

This is why some Coffs Coast residents have an issue with unregulated blueberry farming.

There’s an election this weekend people! Make them accountable! I want them to have to pull it down and release the water back to the kms of ecosystem that flow to the Orara River. We aren’t the only property this is an issue for! Did they not think we would have an issue!?!

  1. Went down and had a look. Nothing like the article describes. There is no dam there. Stupid election stunt. *facepalm*

  2. This article was published on March 20, 2019 Tom. Four and a bit months ago. There was a video of the dam and witnesses to it’s existence.

    I understand the makers of the dam were made to remove it.
