The National Capital Authority is letting the world know that they’ve decided Lake Burley Griffin is now safe to swim in, should you so choose.
The one exception is Weston Park East, which is often a bit of a debris trap as water flows through the lake.
Weston Park East is closed to recreation that involves whole-body water contact or submersion of the head. Examples include swimming, diving and windsurfing.
Lake Burley Griffin has been closed for the last fortnight as a result of sewage contamination.
Although bacteria has returned to a safe level in most areas of the lake, the National Capital Authority warns users of large objects or debris that may be partially or completely submerged.
The NCA’s now hard at work cleaning up the debris and ask if you see something to email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 6271 2888.
