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.
