The National Capital Authority once again warns that their lake is still full of toxic scunge:
- Parts of Lake Burley Griffin are still closed due to unacceptably high levels of blue-green algae and bacteria.
East Basin and Central Basin are closed to all water activities as result of high levels of blue-green algae. Recreation activity involving contact with the water, such as swimming, bathing, canoeing, boating or rowing, is prohibited.
Lake users are advised that immersion in the water poses a health risk at Lotus Bay, Black Mountain Peninsula and Weston Park swimming areas due to elevated bacteria levels. The public should avoid deliberate contact with lake water and are advised to take precautionary measures such as fresh water wash-down following any contact with lake water in these areas.
No word on getting the fountain fixed either.
