Foun­tains to fin­ish

POST Newspapers - - Letters -

About $2.36mil­lion has gone into the Lake J ual b up r e d e v e l o p - ment.

Su­bi­aco coun­cil spent $1.48mil­lion on new walls, em­bank­ment slopes and foot­paths.

A fur­ther $880,000 went into improvements to the lake and sur­round­ing park­land.

The re­cently in­stalled foun­tains have a prac­ti­cal func­tion as well as look­ing good.

“The city has in­stalled new wa­ter jets to aer­ate the wa­ter,” a coun­cil spokes­woman said. “This is es­pe­cially im­por­tant in sum­mer to re­duce the risk of harm­ful al­gae.”

Scores of ducks and other birds died in the lake ear­lier this year as a re­sult of an out­break of bot­u­lism (Duckss­wamp

vet, POST, March 3). Progress was de­layed ear­lier this year when the pro­ject builders went bust and new con­trac­tors had to be ap­pointed.
