Lake Burley Sewer

By Cameron 11 November 2007 21

Apparently the Queanbeyan folk have decided to show Canberra what they really think of us – by leaking their sewerage into the Molonglo River – and thus into Lake Burley Griffin.

The NCA says there are unacceptable levels of “faecal coliform bacteria” in the lake, apparently the result of said leak, and all use of the lake has ceased (and the Captain Cook jet has been shutdown). has the story here

ED – Thanks also to Ruby Wednesday for their take on the story:

“LBG is closed to swimming, boating and other recreational activities after a sewer leak in Queanbeyan. I feel sorry for all those I saw on the lake yesterday afternoon rowing amidst the faecal coliform bacteria. The jet will also be out of action presumably to spare road users and pedestrians on the bridge from being showered with contaminated water.”

What’s Your opinion?

Did I really hear the NSW official (Dept. of Something & Climate Change) interviewed on 666 this morning say Queanbeyan “dog shit” being washed into the river during heavy downpours? Struggle Town’s revenge!
