Hotham-Williams River Restoration Projects

Pumphrey's Bridge Site Concept Plan

As a result of the Hotham-Williams River Action Plan prepared by the Peel-Harvey Catchment Council (PHCC) in 2019-2020, eight priority sites across the Hotham and Williams Rivers will benefit from concept plans for proposed on-ground projects. A new five-year partnership with South32 Worsley Alumina and existing partnership with Newmont Australia will enable the implementation of actions within the plans focused on environmental restoration, at four of the eight sites.

Across 19th to 21st May, 4 community information sessions were held in Williams, Popanyinning, Boddington and at Pumphreys Bridge to present these conceptual site plans for proposed restoration works. We also presented the proposed plans at the Boddington, Wandering, Williams and Cuballing Shire Council meetings.

Comments were received from Council and the community, and over the next few weeks there will be further opportunity for feedback. Direct involvement with local Shires and community will be essential if additional outcomes are to be implemented that are focused on community access and amenity at the sites.
