NCA anticipating floodwaters

By johnboy 26 November 2011 5

The National Capital Authority last night gave notice that they were letting water out of Lake Burley Griffin to cater for anticipated floodwater over coming days.

Lake Burley Griffin will be lowered 200mm overnight in anticipation of increased water inflows over the coming days.

Lake users are urged to exercise additional caution and be aware of submerged objects.

The National Capital Authority reminds the public to stay away from the area downstream of Scrivener Dam while the water is released.

The water level will be lowered without the operation of flap gates.

Good luck to everyone at Foreshore today!

That’s one way to put a stop to the jumpers.

Heaps of water chundering into Lake Ginninderra up near the soccer club this arvo. Water level still quite low at Coppins though (well, low compared to this time last year anyway).

Just drove past a nice catamaran for sale in Lyneham which would be greate on the lake in a stiff breeze.

Lets hope the broken sh#tworks at Qbn hasn’t released a literal sh%tload into the lake, as it usually does with a bit of rain. Could be a nice fragrance at Foreshore! 😛 Lucky it’s not that close to the lake.

It sounds like the equivelent of flushing a very blocked toilet. Let’s hope the movement of fresh water keeps the algae blooms down.
