Encounter Lakes System Re-opened

The Encounter Lakes Waterway and Franklin Island Waterways have been re-opened.

Water quality tests have been complete and Encounter Lakes and Franklin Island waterways are now open for recreational use.

The recent closure was a result of contamination likely to have occurred as a result of consideration rainfall that occurred of 20 January 2020 that directed flows from roofs, lawns, roads and road verges in to the lake.

The Council will continue its scheduled testing program to monitor water quality.

Thank you for your patience.
