Despite progressing well into winter with cooler water conditions far from ideal for Algal growth, the lake still remains closed. With the last water quality update 2 months ago, the Care Group have requested regular updates every 3 months to keep the public informed on current conditions and any improvements.
Council have advised they are working towards providing regular water quality trends in the near future that will be updated on the Councils Lake Hugh Muntz Webpage
Winter/early spring is normally the time the lake “gasps for air” from the ongoing Algal blooms but the current brown, cloudy water conditions are not promising.
The Short term Options Report from Griffith Algae Experts due shortly may offer some hope for improving conditions.
