With the lake closed for barely a week, the aerial view clearly highlights the severe impact that the algal boom is having on LHM. While the surrounding waterways are still recovering from the rains in December, the BIG green of LHM stands out as a waterway in serious trouble.
It’s hard to believe, but we now have 5 years of consecutive lake closures. Once again the lake has been degraded into a green mess for who knows how long resulting in further decline.
The community has patiently waited through endless reports and now a feasibility study of options. Clearly the time has come for a FIRM COMMITMENT FROM COUNCIL ON SIGNIFICANT ACTION BEFORE NEXT SUMMER!
The Care Group would like to call a very important meeting of all stakeholders at Bel-air Park on Sunday the 31st of January at 4PM to discuss the issues and get feedback.
