The National Capital Authority has, at long last, advised that Lake Burley Griffin is once again fit for use after closures began in the long long ago of February.
- NCA Chief Executive, Gary Rake said the lake is now considered safe for recreational use.
‘Water-quality results received today, show the levels of blue-green algae are now within safe parameters.’
‘We appreciate the recent lake closures have inconvenienced the public, however our primary concern is to ensure that the lake does not pose a health risk.’
‘We have commissioned a study to evaluate potential solutions to assist with blue-green algae levels next summer.’
They also advise that the long closed Captain Cook Memorial Jet will be returned to service on 3 July.
Happy news indeed.
