Inquiries were made today with Council on recent trends in water quality relating to the ongoing Algal bloom. The last results received in Councils Newsletter to residents below indicate a downward trend. Unfortunately the algae results have remained above the red closure level in all sites measured. The lake will continue to be closed in the foreseeable future.
The Care Group met with Council this week to discuss the ongoing decline of Lake Hugh Muntz.
Council advised that they are formulating a 2018 Management Plan and are investigating options to improve the water quality of this asset. As part of the process, the Care Group have been asked for their input on improvement measures.
A Griffith University Algae expert is investigating the problem and will hopefully have some options in the next 2 months. The Care Group have asked to meet with Council and the Algae expert to discuss options.
