Seqwater will be conducting a series of planned burns near Hinze Dam from Friday 19 August 2016, subject to weather conditions and other unforeseen delays.

The planned burns will occur on Seqwater land near Nerang Murwillumbah Road, Kagoola Drive and Gilward Drive. The burns will take a few days to complete and smoke may drift into surrounding areas, staying around for up to two weeks after the burn period.


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

Please remain vigilant and follow the directions of signage and staff on site if you are visiting the area. If you have a respiratory health condition, follow the advice of your health practitioner and in case of an emergency, call Triple Zero (000).
