Council have advised, at very short notice that they are holding an information session this Saturday at Bel Air Park 10am to 12pm. Council Officers and representatives from Alluvium consulting will be providing information on the current state of the lake, history and characteristics.
The question was asked “what is the prognosis or future of the lake” without effective treatment, with the reply indicating that Algal blooms would continue, with increasing frequency and severity most likely
Clearly this outcome is not acceptable. With an alert issued last week for elevated algae levels, and increasing algal scum indicating yet another possible lake closure, this is a great opportunity to hear the issues and voice your concerns loud and clear to Council representatives over the lack of action, the lack of a plan and no timeline.
The recent photo highlights the ongoing poor state of the lake after 20 years of decline under Councils Management with the trend predicted to worsen over the coming years.
