Victoria Park Lake open again

GV Water would like to advise that Victoria Park Lake will be open again to users as from this evening Thursday 7 December.

The Lake was closed due to water quality issues following the rain event last weekend. Several areas of the lake have been extensively tested on a daily basis and levels of contamination are now well below the National Health and Medical Research Council guidelines.

As a secondary contact water body it is now deemed safe for water sports that allow incidental contact only. Swimmers are advised not to use the lake.

Thank you for your cooperation, more information can be found at
