SEQWater Recreation access update
« on: March 12, 2013, 09:29:07 AM »
Recreation facilities – closures and safety UPDATE (Monday, 11 March)
Water-based recreation activities
Lake Baroon was re-opened to water-based recreation activities from midday Friday, 8 March 2013. Lake Somerset was re-opened to water-based recreation activities on Thursday, 7 March 2013.
 
The following Seqwater lakes remain closed to ALL water based activities:

Lake Wyaralong Western Trailhead lagoon (adjoining Lilybrook Homestead) will be closed from 6.00 am Tuesday, 12 March 2013. Please note, the main body of Lake Wyaralong remains open.
 
The temporary closure of these lakes is a precautionary measure based on inflows into the lakes and potential adverse water quality in the lakes as a result of the current rainfall event.
 
Water quality samples will be taken as soon as practical, and the lakes will be re-opened as soon as conditions indicate that it is appropriate to do so.
 
The above lakes will remain CLOSED until further notice. Signage will be placed at public recreation areas advising of the temporary closure.
 
Please note that the Eastern boat ramp at Hinze Dam remains closed, pending rectification works on the access road. The Western boat ramp at Hinze Dam is open during normal opening hours (6am to 6pm).
 
Other Seqwater lakes are currently open. Seqwater urges caution to all visitors due to changing conditions at the lakes.

CLOSED – Hinze Dam, Eastern Boat Ramp due to damage to access road.
