Recreational vehicle users now have an additional location on the West Coast to remove grey water following the installation of a dump point in Rosebery.
A dump point had previously been located in Agnes Street but was removed several years ago due to concerns around traffic management. The new dump point is located in Park Road, opposite the caravan park, an ideal location says West Coast Mayor Phil Vickers.
“With so many tourists using motorhomes to see our region, to locate the dump point opposite the caravan park was ideal however it would not have been possible without our partnership with MMG Rosebery Mine who own the land,” Mayor Vickers said.
At a cost of just over $3000 the project was highlighted for completion in the 2016-2017 Capital Works program and was installed by TasWater following confirmation of permission to use MMG land.
“Rosebery mine is pleased to partner with the West Coast Council in providing an additional dump point for our RV visitors.” Operations Manager at MMG Rosebery Jenkins Kroon said. “The location of the dump point is in close proximity to the Rosebery Caravan Park and we would like to encourage our visitors to visit our local Caravan Park and to use this dump point instead of the toilets at the MMG-owned Stitt Park, with these toilets closing down soon due to high maintenance costs.”
