Ribbon weed cutting at Victoria Park Lake 4 March

Greater Shepparton City Council will undertake proactive ribbon weed cutting at Victoria Park Lake from Monday 8 March until Monday 19 March.

To ensure the maintenance takes place efficiently and safely, the Lake will be closed for all public use between the hours of 6am to 6pm during this period. 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.
