Testing results by ALS, EPA, State Fisheries and DPI indicate that although visually unpleasant, the water in the lake is in a normal state with the problem occurring due to de-oxygenation caused by a combination of natural factors.
Robert Bailey, Community Manager, from Beaumont Strata Management said, “No pollution source was identified and as this has happened before, nature is expected to correct itself.”
“The Community Association Executive Committee will continue to monitor the water along with MidCoast Council.”
President of the Myall Quays Community Association Executive Committee, Louise Carruthers, told News of the Area, “I believe that it was the quick action of our Committee to have the water tested as soon as possible after the event that has helped to allay concerns of our residents and it is wonderful that our lake will maintain its once pristine condition.”
“Should any undue deterioration develop in the future, our Committee will keep the residents fully informed,” Ms Carruthers said.
