Summary

The primary function of the lake system is to provide treatment of stormwater from the surrounding catchment. In addition, within the urban landscape, the lake system is a valuable environmental corridor that connects complex natural ecosystems, natural areas and open space for wildlife movement, protection of natural resources, and green space for the enjoyment of local residents.

The rectification actions to be implemented as part of this project will address the identified issues by revegetation with appropriate local species, providing dedicated maintenance access points and by reducing the underlying causes of poor water quality. In completing the works, the project will:
  • restore the vital water quality treatment function
  • improve the ecology of the lake system
  • reduce the area favourable to mosquitoes and provide habitat for mosquito predators
  • enhance the lake systems environmental and aesthetic values.
