Prescribed burn at Warren Reservoir Reserve

Date posted: 10 Apr. 2024

A prescribed burn is planned at Warren Reservoir Reserve, near Williamstown in the Adelaide Mount Lofty Ranges, on Thursday 11 April, weather conditions permitting.

  • The burn will start at 11:30am on Thursday 11 April and is likely to be completed by 6:00pm that evening.
  • The area to be burnt is 2.5 hectares north of South Para Reservoir along Track 1D.
  • The landscape protection burn aims to create a low fuel area along the South Para River between Warren Reservoir Reserve and Warren Conservation Park.
  • It is unlikely any roads will be impacted by smoke due to the location and size of the burn.
  • The burn is being conducted by National Parks and Wildlife Service SA on behalf of SA Water.
  • National Parks and Wildlife Service crews will remain on site until safe.

NPWSSA conducts a statewide program of prescribed burns to reduce the spread and intensity of bushfires, protect communities and enhance biodiversity. Prescribed burning is just one tool used to reduce fuel loads across strategic areas of public and private land.

Prescribed burns will only be carried out when it is deemed safe to do so and may be cancelled at short notice.
