The Tuggeranong Community Council has prepared an E- Petition addressed To the Speaker and Members of the Legislative Assembly for the Australian Capital Territory.
This petition of certain residents of the Australian Capital Territory draws to the attention of the Assembly that for many years, Lake Tuggeranong has faced annual closures because of outbreaks of blue-green algae, caused by poor quality water. These outbreaks lead to bad smells, health risks for people and animals, and cancelled sporting and community events.
Your petitioners therefore request that the Assembly call on the government to take immediate action to clean up Lake Tuggeranong, and fulfill their election promise to build wetlands in the Tuggeranong Valley, which will help to improve the quality of water flowing into the lake.
