Lake Benalla Drawdown
Water in Lake Benalla is being lowered over the coming months in an effort to help manage the invasive Cabomba weed that can be detrimental to native aquatic animals and the lake.
The drawdown began last week and is expected to last for up to 8 weeks depending on the weather.
The lake drawdown has been requested by the Goulburn Broken Catchment Management Authority (GMCMA) and has been scheduled to t into the hottest part of the year, to get the best result, and also around the breeding season of the resident platypus.
