Please see the info below courtesy GCCC. “Hotspots” for algae included in image below;
Recent water quality testing undertaken within Lake Hugh Muntz has indicated an increase in Algae Biovolume. The most recent graph and further information can be found on the City’s Lake Hugh Muntz Website.
The recent hot weather is not helping and is most likely the cause of the sudden spike in algal biovolume. A possible reason for two locations having higher biovolumes could be attributed to windblown algal accumulating at these locations.
Next sampling will be undertaken on Tuesday 29th January 2019 for cyanobacteria identification and biovolume.
