Powering the future
A MUNDUBBERA project is one of the recipients in the first year of Ergon Energy's new $100,000 Envirofund initiative aimed at helping regional Queensland communities work towards a more sustainable future.
Area operations manager Craig Harris said $7700 has been awarded to North Burnett Regional Council and Burnett Catchment Care Association for a project to revive Killala Creek.
“Ergon Energy is pleased that Envirofund will assist these groups to make good progress towards removing weeds at two public sites along the creek,” he said.
“The funding will enable volunteers from schools and the community to replant those areas with native plants, including water plants in the permanent waterholes.”
The funding announcement was welcomed by North Burnett Regional Council Mayor Joy Jensen and North Burnett Regional Council resources management officer Lee Dorahy.
“This project will not only be great for the environment, but will be greatly appreciated by the local community,” Cr Jensen said.
