RISDON BROOK PARK - UPDATE Wednesday 2 September 2020
Risdon Brook Park remains closed to the public following extensive storm damage. 
TasWater is working with contractors to understand the extent of the storm damage and options for remediation. 
Some sections of the track were submerged by three feet of water along with a number of trees that were damaged.
Unfortunately, we remain unable to provide an estimated date for reopening at this stage.

Visitors familiar with the site will notice that there is more shoreline exposed than usual, this is due to recent lowering of water levels to provide access for water vegetation removal. 500 tonnes of weeds have been removed from the reservoir, which will improve the quality of the water that is stored in the reservoir. TasWater is now refilling the reservoir, with water expected to be returned to a more familiar level by late November.

 

Risdon Brook Park is the location of one of TasWater's largest drinking water reservoirs in the south of the state. Set among dense bushland, Risdon Brook Park is a popular recreational area and offers a walking track, barbecue facilities and disabled fishing bays, children's playground and toilets.
