Lake Mul­wala to be emp­tied

de­liv­ery to customers is fin­ished for the year, we’ll ac­cel­er­ate the draw­down un­til Lake Mul­wala is 3.5 me­tres lower than nor­mal—a level we ex­pect to hold un­til mid-July when re­fill­ing will start,” Mr Reynolds said.

“The low­er­ing will ex­pose the lake flats, which will be muddy, re­duc­ing amenity, ac­cess and the abil­ity to launch boats from the boat ramps. Peo­ple will still be able to boat and fish in the main river chan­nel that runs through the lake but will need to launch their boats up­stream.

“Along with GMW we have been talk­ing with com­mu­nity mem­bers, coun­cil and tourism op­er­a­tors to try to min­imise and limit dis­rup­tions.”

A low­ered Lake Mul­wala this win­ter will again pro­vide a unique spec­ta­cle.
