Harriman Point works completed

Waranga Basin’s Harriman Point has reopened following the completion of boat ramp repairs. The recreation area was closed in early May due to erosion occurring along the side of the high-level boat ramp.

GMW Storage Operations Manager South Paul Beard said the repairs went smoothly. “We needed water levels at Waranga Basin to drop to make the works possible,” he said.

“It was fortuitous that the water levels were low enough so we could complete the works during the colder months when usage of the ramp is lower and that we avoided any weather delays. We appreciate people’s patience and cooperation during these works,” Mr Beard said.

The work was contracted to Exton Earthworks who completed the job coming in under budget.

Harriman Point boat ramp was upgraded in 2022 with funding from the Victorian Government.

The ramp was doubled in size to boost capacity, improve safety and access and make launching easier for boaters heading out on the water.

Waranga Basin also has boat ramps located at Caravan Park Reserve and Sapling Point.
