Wild Dog And Feral Pig Baiting Program
August 7, 2018: South Burnett Regional Council in conjunction with Biosecurity Queensland will be participating in a coordinated Wild Dog and Feral Pig Baiting Program in September.

Failure to control wild dogs and feral pigs can result in livestock losses, attacks on domestic pets and the loss of native fauna.

Landholders have a legislative responsibility to control declared pests on their land and participation in this program is an effective way to help meet this responsibility.

Baiting stations will be held throughout the South Burnett from the 10–17 September 2018.

For further information and to register your intention of attending a baiting station please contact Kerry Hayes, Council's Stock Route and Pest Officer on telephone (07) 4189 9312.

All participants must register their intention to conduct baiting no later than Friday 31 August 2018.

Notice of Works: Water Bore Flow Testing
Barkers Creek/Meandu Creek Flats

July 30, 2018: Council will continue bore flow testing on the Barkers Creek/Meandu Creek flats west of Nanango commencing Tuesday 31 July.

This project is necessary to ensure the adequacy of water supply to the pumping systems, that will provide sustainable drinking water supply to the Nanango township. The bore test will not impact on the current water supply to Nanango.

Works will include a 100 hr pump test on the last of the three bores, following two earlier tests. This bore water flow will be directed to Barkers and Meandu Creeks.

Neighbouring farmers have declined any beneficial use of this water. Works are required at this time of year when water supply demand is lower.

Should you have any queries during this test period, please contact Council’s Customer Contact Centres on (07) 4189-9100.
