Ribbon weed cutting at Victoria Park Lake

Greater Shepparton City Council will undertake proactive ribbon weed cutting at Victoria Park Lake from Monday 5 October until Friday 16 October. (Please note updated dates.)

During this time the lake will be closed for all public use between the hours of 6am to 6pm, to ensure the maintenance takes place both efficiently and safely. Works will not be undertaken on weekends.

Surrounding open space areas and playgrounds will remain open and will not be affected by the works.

Council has worked with user groups to advise of the works and minimise interruptions.

The process involves use of an aquatic harvester boat, which cuts the plant below the surface and stores the cut material on board for later disposal.

Some minor offcuts may wash up on banks over the next few days and will be removed by Council.

For further information contact Council on 5832 9700.
