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!
