Money for weir work

The State Government has confirmed plans to provide the $3.4-million needed for restoration works on Dimboola and Jeparit weirs damaged by 2011 floodwater.
Treasurer Kim Wells said the funding would go to repairing the weir walls and revitalise the surrounding areas for community use.
“The floods in the Wimmera River caused substantial damage to the weir structures, including the walkways, handrails and gates, as well as eroding the river banks where the flood waters overflowed,” Mr Wells said.
“At Dimboola, a more resilient structure will be built that can withstand large floods.”
Minister and Member for Lowan Hugh Delahunty said the Dimboola weir, built last century, had traditionally provided water for Dimboola township.
