Aerators will improve lake health : CEO

ARARAT Rural City Council has commissioned three new aerators in Alexandra Gardens Lake in a bid to prevent further cases of blue green algae.
Council has invested around $40,000 on the new aerators which were deemed the best way of dealing with outbreaks of algae.
Blue-green algae developed in the lake in March due to limited water flow and a high nutrient load in the water.
At the time, council quickly commenced excavations works to allow water to flow more freely and placed an order for three new fountains (aerators) to help oxygenate the water.
The new aerators were switched on Thursday lunchtime by Deputy Mayor Bob Sanders.
