Review of Weir/Pool - Draining of Gingin Brook

Published on Tuesday, 24 November 2020 at 2:01:50 PM

The community may have noticed some activity recently around the Weir/Pool in Granville Park. The Shire is currently in the process of draining the brook in order to undertake a required assessment of the structural integrity of the concrete basin, walls and other accompanying structures, as well as to review the environmental aspects surrounding the water flowing through the brook. This will also include sediment assessments and water testing.

All of the information gathered from this assessment will be utilised to design the replacement weir structure that is better suited for safety and environmental impact as the current structure is significantly aged. The Shire has engaged an engineering consultant to undertake this review with the brook being drained over the next week to allow the consultants the best opportunity to view all of the structural components, as well as to undertake a survey of the area.

All care will be taken to ensure that there is minimal environmental impact to the area and once the assessment has been undertaken, the area will be returned to its usual state until such time as the new weir is ready to be installed.
