A community meeting will be held to present the findings of a study into the environmental, social and economic impacts of proposed changes to Gowangardie Weir.

Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is urging interested community members to attend and hear first hand information arising out of the study of the Weir on the Broken River.

The meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 21st September 2004 (commencing at 7.30pm, Cosgrove Golf Club, Cosgrove Road, Cosgrove)

The study has looked at past and current environmental impacts of the weir and the impact of modifying or removal. It has also assessed the stability of the structure and costs associated with maintenance or change.

The community will be given the opportunity to ask questions, comment and submit issues for consideration as part of the finalisation of the Gowangardie Weir Study.

The need to remove barriers to fish passage on the Broken River has been recognised as a priority by the Draft Goulburn Broken Regional River Health Strategy.

The Broken River supports significant populations of native fish including Murray cod and golden perch.

All project enquiries or submissions can be directed to the Project Manager, Mark Turner, by telephoning (03) 5822 7700 or emailing markt@gbcma.vic.gov.au
