Lake Hugh Muntz has again been closed due to high algae levels.
As this is now the 4th consecutive annual closure, clearly the lake is approaching a critical point of no return. Urgent action needs to be a priority.
The current unedited Google Earth photo highlights the appalling condition of LHM compared to other waterways.
The unchecked deterioration of the lake over many years has led to the current critical state of this once unique community asset. With the lakes ongoing poor condition, unfortunately it seems these closures will continue.
The photo below from 2012 shows how long the ongoing deterioration of the lake has been an issue, compared to other waterways.
Clearly the time has come for URGENT ACTION!
