Save Lake Tuggeranong

Call for action to Save Lake Tuggeranong

A recent community forum called for government and community action to solve pollution problems in Lake Tuggeranong.

The forum, held at the Tuggeranong Community Centre, was jointly hosted by the Southern ACT Catchment Group (SACTCG), Concerned Residents for West Kambah (CROWK) and the Tuggeranong Community Council (TCC).

The ‘bushies’ as they have become affectionately known as started life in the winter of 1998. The then 15 strong crew were approached by a Parks and Conservation ranger (namely our own Steve Welch) to assist in revegetation after the removal of the last stands of commercially grown pine plantations (known as the Boboyan Pine Plantations) in the Namadgi National Park.

Catchment Update Summer 2010

The ‘eofys’ (end of financial year) monster will and should be used by all as an all round excuse for things being late. I will of course use this same excuse for as long as I can get away with it.
Here, finally, in mid winter, is the report for autumn.

In General:
Well above average rainfall for February, March and May, has had a big impact on our region over autumn. The dams topped up to about 56% for the first time since 2006 (ActewAGL data) and the long suffering Murrumbidgee River also managed a clean out and a top up during this time.
