The Care Group have inquired why the lake has remained closed after having readings below the red trigger closure levels for the last 2 months. Council advised that Toxin levels are also tested and are still above the recommendation for primary contact.
The concern was raised that potential users of the lake could make a false judgment based on the incomplete information in the GCCC graph and prematurely start using the lake without knowing the consequences. The Care Group have asked that the toxin levels be added to the graph and remind users not to swim in the lake while closure signs are present.
