Algae Levels on the Rise After Rainfall – Lack of Action?

The latest water quality results show an increase in Algae levels after the weekend rain.

There are many contributing factors that can cause an increase but based on observations over the weekend, clearly ongoing Catchment Management Issues are having a negative effect on water quality. Considering many of these issues have remained unresolved for years, the question has to be asked “why hasn’t Council taken action” to reduce the negative impact of these problems?

The Care Group will continue to raise these issues and have produced a video (below)highlighting just some of the ongoing problems.
