The NCA are informing us that sewage has overflowed into the Queanbeyan River and from thence into our Lake Burley Griffin.
- Bacterial sampling and testing is underway.
Lake user groups have been notified of the leak.
At this stage, there is no need to close Lake Burley Griffin. The NCA will continue to closely monitor water quality throughout the lake, and provide updates as results become available.
UPDATED: The NCA now advise that the lake is no worse than usual.
