RESTRICTED BURNING PERIOD IN THE SHIRE OF BODDINGTON HAS BEEN LIFTED

The Restricted Burning Period in the Shire of Boddington has been lifted - the burning season is now open. Permits are no longer required; however caution is still advised when burning.

 Don’t let the cooler days and the little bit of rain fool you, the fire will still burn quite quickly until we get a lot more rain to start to

soak the ground and flammable materials. With the current situation with the Covid-19 and social distancing rules, we are doing our part by reducing the risk of call outs of our volunteers.

 Even when the restricted season is lifted, we will still need to be vigilant and responsible when it comes to burning off outside.

 Regards

A message from the Water Corporation

The Water Corporation is prepared for bushfire season however we cannot guarantee that water pressure or water supply will be maintained in the event of a bushfire.  We will always do all we can to maintain supply however fire damaged infrastructure or a cut to power can result in a total loss of water.  If scheme water is available during a bushfire it is a bonus for property protection efforts, but it is not something that can be relied upon. People who plan to stay and defend their property during a bushfire need to have their own independent water supply and pumping capacity, and must not rely on the public water supply. Full details about how to prepare for the bushfire season can be found on the DFES website.
