As part of our ongoing program of works to improve and enhance our stormwater assets, Hunter Water commenced construction works in early February to rehabilitate degraded sections of the Throsby Creek embankment . The areas focused for rehabilitation were located along sections of the creek running through the suburbs of Maryville and Tighes Hill. These works are now complete. The rehabilitation works along the banks of Throsby Creek has improved the visual amenity of Throsby Creek and will protect and enhance the local environment.
Due to the success of this completed works Hunter Water completed further maintenance work on sections of the Throsby Creek embankment downstream of the Maitland Road bridge in Islington, near the junction of Throsby and Styk Creek and adjacent to Islington Park.
