Congratulations to Lake Mealup Preservation Society members in the work that results in a weir at the Lake, designed to help raise the water level and improve water quality. They determined that water levels on the lake needed to be maintained to reduce acidity and stop the lake bed from oxidizing. The Peel Harvey Catchment Council (through the Filtering the Nutrient Storm project) with DEC and the DOW installed a weir in the Mealup Main Drain, south of the lake, and divert water into the lake.
WA Environment Bill Marmion will launch the project on Tue 9th October out at the lake. Well done all!
