Wilcannia Weir upgrade

Topic: Environment

The NSW Department of Industry is seeking feedback on the Wilcannia Weir upgrade.

What's this about?

The Wilcannia Weir is the primary source of water supply for the town. The weir offers more than water security. It will be a place for the Wilcannia community to swim, fish, walk, picnic and celebrate spiritual and cultural traditions.

The existing weir is in a poor state of repair. The NSW Government has undertaken extensive community engagement and prepared a scoping study and business case for the upgrade.

The investigations considered many locations for upgrading the weir. The proposed option for the new weir is located approximately 5.2 kilometres downstream from the existing weir.

You are invited to have your say on the preferred location of the weir.

Community information sessions

Discussions and interviews with stakeholders will be held in Wilcannia between 5 – 7 February 2019.

Drop in sessions to discuss the proposal with the community will be held in the Central Darling Shire Council Chambers.

  • Date: Wednesday, 6 February 2019
  • Time: 12 – 2pm and 6 – 8pm.
  • Address: 21 Reid Street, Wilcannia.
