Weevils are doing their job on Muddy Lake
16th April 2023
A bit of good news on Muddy Lake at Dora Creek.
The photo above shows that the weevils are finally doing their job on the salvinia infestation.
This is fantastic news. Lake Macquarie City Council and the biosecurity experts at Crown Lands have been doing a lot of good work behind the scenes on this problem.
They say the weevils have eaten through the submerged layers and we can now see clear pockets of surface water starting to reappear.
It's a slow process and will take some more time, and the waterway is not out of the woods just yet, but this is really encouraging. Here's hoping this continues and we see all the birds and biodiversity return there.
