City of Gold Coast Council has placed Lake Hugh Muntz on a regular cleaning roster similar to what other selected waterways receive.
Council advised the inspection/cleaning works will be undertaken by a two man crew from City Maintenance. They will be using a small motorised punt and/or waders depending on conditions and debris/litter encountered.
Access will be via Bel Air Park and the crew will be patrolling the entire lake perimeter each time. Inorganic litter and larger organic items (palm fronds) will be targeted.
City Maintenance will aim to undertake a monthly inspection/clean of the lake although the crew has more than 50 lakes to target each month so they’re kept reasonably busy.
This is a great initiative by Council and will complement the thorough cleaning the lake receives on the Annual Clean-up Day in October.
