Mayor Doug Eaton Personally Oversees Sand Pumping at The Entrance Beach
by Gaye Crispin
Sand pumping got underway today at The Entrance Beach, with Wyong Shire Council Mayor Doug Eaton OAM on hand to ensure all went according to plan.
The 850 metres of 12 inch pipes delivered to The Entrance Beach last month have now been installed, with the much anticipated pumping now underway by Wyong Council’s 1993 Cutter Suction dredge.
The dredge is pumping sand directly from The Entrance channel on to The Entrance Beach, a popular swimming spot and tourist destination.
Mayor Eaton said “The dredging program is expected to be finished in November, well in time for the peak holiday season.”
The 70 litre per hour diesel dredge will operate approx 12 hours a day for the next 6 weeks or so and is well worth a visit to see it in action.
