Filthy Queanbeyan drops crap into our lake.

By johnboy - 2 October 2008 24

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.

What’s Your opinion?

With so much crap in Lake Burley Griffin already who would notice a little more and btw I understand Telstra is being prosecuted for the major leak that happened 6 months ago…..so there!!

I’ll try [almost] anything once! Amazing though how one doesn’t seem to have these implements lying around the home when one needs them. As a community we have obviously grown soft. It’s back to vigilante posse bootcamp for us, I fear ….

Awwwgggh Crap !

We need recognise that as far as sh1t goes, Queanbeyan is doing it regularly. They must be eating enough roughage.

Does this mean that Captain Cooks water jet will be firing polly waffles up into the air ? Lets hope they don’t land amongst the Floriade crowds.

Gold!

LOL – really would like to see that!

Is this a Pangallo election stunt?

Whats a little extra raw sewage, it just contributes to the already large pile that makes up the ACT anyhow, a pimple on the backside of NSW

Pfft that’s stupid, pimples can be popped.

Queanbeyannians are, indirectly, crapping directly into our lake. Unacceptable.

Its been what, six months since the last time this happened?
And wasnt it only 10,000 litres of far sewage, when Pangallo decided to blame Telstra instead of admitting there were problems, the time before that?
