Seqwater will be conducting a planned burn near Lake Wivenhoe from Tuesday 9 August 2016, subject to weather conditions and other unforeseen delays.

The planned burn is scheduled near Framptons Road and Wivenhoe Somerset Road and will take up to three days to complete. Smoke may drift into surrounding areas, and stay around for up to two weeks after the burn period.

The Branch Creek Day Use Area will be closed to the public for the duration of the planned burn. Please remain vigilant and follow the directions of signage and staff on site if you are visiting the area.

Trained Seqwater personnel are working closely with Queensland Fire and Emergency Services and the local rural fire brigade.

 If you have a respiratory health condition, follow the advice of your health practitioner and in case of an emergency, call Triple Zero (000).
