We continue to promote our lake as an ideal paradise to enjoy all forms of water sport. What a pity the powers to be do not have a good look at our lake at the moment.
During last year statements were made that weed growth in the lake was not a problem, how wrong they were, at the moment some parts of our lake have floating islands of weed, whilst the remainder has excessive and extensive growth from the bottom to the top of the water.
If something is not done to address the situation, and I mean something positive and effective, we will have a weed infested everglade environment where water sports will become a distant memory.
The lake is vital to our farmers and our town, action is needed now, or it will be” paradise lost”.
My understanding is the infestation is not from a native weed but an introduced aquarium weed, action is being planned to address the introduced carp problem, and the same urgency is needed to address the weed problem. Barry Pitt Yarrawonga
