The ongoing closures are a disaster for the health of the lake as well as the community who regularly use this public asset. The dependency on this lake for users and local clubs is highlighted by the fact that many are still swimming in the lake despite the risk to their health – for some users, there are no other suitable training areas available! Ongoing lake health issues need to be addressed URGENTLY!

Council Have Signed a “Death Sentence” for LHM!

YOUR URGENT ACTION REQUIRED!

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

STEP 1. COULD YOU PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION ON OUR WEBSITE THAT STATES;

  • That Council formally classifies the designation of the lake (set out in the Lake Management Plan 2008) to be a PRIMARY CONTACT water body and suitable for swimming and related recreational activities at the request, and for the benefit, of the local community; AND
  • Council seriously and expeditiously investigates all available technical solutions to returning the lake on a sustainable basis to pre-2007 water quality levels to enable reliable use as a PRIMARY CONTACT water body.

STEP 2. COULD YOU PLEASE SHARE THE WEBSITE AND FACEBOOK PAGE WITH YOUR CONTACTS to get as many signatures on the petition as possible and spread the word on the possible Death of Lake Hugh Muntz!

STEP 3. COULD YOU PLEASE COMPLAIN AND COMPLAIN LOUDLY TO THE DECISION MAKERS BELOW on the points above including;

  • Why has Council, the asset owner, let this unique freshwater lake deteriorate to such a poor condition?
  • Why the Management Plan was not implemented in full?
  • Why Council have no plans to rectify the ongoing decline?
