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.

I have a DREAM today!

I have a DREAM that one day, down in central Canberra, with its vicious Commonwealth Authorities, with its Chief Minister having his lips dripping with the words of “arboreta” and “lattes on the Lake” — one day right there in Canberra little private school boys and private school girls will be able to join hands with little state school boys and state school girls as coxed and coxless fours.

I have a DREAM today!

I think there should be a lake party on the 3rd at the time when the jet is turned on!!!

Who is this “God Alighty” fella & why didn’t we call him in to fix it sooner?

Beware Carp and Dead Bodies!

Hazzah! Lovely weather for a nice swim.
