Cr Cox - Midge control

Midge control

We have been monitoring midge larvae numbers in Currimundi Lake and closed the lake entrance to help combat excessive larval levels. The work is timed to flood the midge habitat and disrupt the breeding cycle as much as possible. The lake will remain at its high tide level for six weeks to drown larvae. This will reduce the amount of hatching adult midges by about 95% and keep their populations down for many months afterwards. Lake goers can continue to use the lake as normal during the closure period.

Coastal pathway master plan

Council will soon be seeking comment on its draft master plan for the coastal pathway, which will help guide future pathway construction. I know many Division 3 residents will want to see what is planned and I’ll keep you updated when this consultation period starts.

Pet registration

Now is the time to register your furry friends. Cat and dog owners started receiving their annual animal registration renewal notices in the mail last week. Renewal is due by September 30. This is also a good time to update your pet’s details if they have changed.
