The Commissioner for Sustainability and the Environment, Dr Maxine Cooper, has today called for submissions as part of her “Investigation into the state of the water courses and catchments for Lake Burley Griffin”.
These are the terms of reference:
Investigate the state of the water courses and catchments for Lake Burley Griffin including:
1. possible improvements for managing water quality and the appropriateness of the current protocols for lake closures;
2. identifying the causes of lower water quality, including possible resource implications of addressing them;
3. jurisdictional implications for water quality management of the lake; and
4. the implication of these findings for the ACT’s other major recreational waterways, such as Lake Ginninderra and Lake Tuggeranong.
