The Manning River near Harrington will benefit from up to $115,250 in funding for dredging thanks to the Nationals in Government.

NSW Nationals Member for Myall Lakes Stephen Bromhead said under the Rescuing our Waterways program, MidCoast Council would oversee the dredging and match the funding dollar-for-dollar.

“Since 2012, MidCoast Council has received more than $2 million in funding assistance under the Rescuing our Waterways program,” Mr Bromhead said. “Dredging will maintain and improve access for boat owners to the river. It is important we keep these waterways open for our local community and many visitors who choose the Myall Lakes for their boating holidays.”
