And it’s not from lobbyists hair product!

The ABC has the story on efforts to keep a building site oil spill from getting into the lake:

Containment booms have been placed across drains in Barton to prevent a serious oil spill from reaching nearby Lake Burley Griffin.

It is believed the oil spill started at a renovation site behind the National Press Club in Canberra’s south.

Emergency workers were called to the scene just before 6pm.
