The options report is now available on the Council Website. Link included below.
The key to any report is the follow-up with action to address the key issues affecting the long term health of the lake. The Care Group will be looking forward to the plan to implement the best options to address the ongoing trend of increasing stratification and increasing salt that is has been a major contributor to the decline in water quality.
The one way valve did not score as well as expected – Alluvium only had medium confidence in their assessment given the minimal evidence and no modelling. Despite the significant influence the canal input has on both the salt and nutrient levels, there has been no assessment, investigation or modelling to determine how this input effects the lake.
Given the importance, the Care Group request that proper investigation including modelling be carried out on canal input.
