The ACT Territory and Municipal Services Directorate (TAMS) will today, Tuesday 19 March, 2013, weather permitting, continue with a controlled burn in the Bendora Dam area in Namadgi National Park, between Bendora Road and Pipeline Road.
The burn is approximately 264 hectares in size.
The ACT Handy Map grid reference for the burn is F14.
Temporary smoke cover may occur. Every effort is made to conduct the burn in weather conditions that will minimise the impact of smoke in the area.
The Health Directorate advises that people with asthma, other chronic respiratory and/or chronic cardiac diseases should not perform vigorous exercise and should stay inside if affected by the smoke. People with asthma in particular should continue their medication and consult their general practitioner if they have any difficulties.
