Tender Description

The Mangrove Creek Dam catchments were significantly affected by the Three Mile Fire in December 2019, with RFS mapping indicating that 80 percent and 20 percent respectively of the catchment areas were burnt.
The fire also destroyed the Mangrove Creek Dam Picnic Area including the amenities building, fencing and information display boards. The loss of this Council asset as resulted in the area being closed to the public for close to one year and the area is currently being serviced by portable toilets to enable some form of public visitation.
