We had a busy day visiting three schools in Cromwell and running our last online workshop to collect feedback for the community visioning report for lake Dunstan
Three decades after the creation of Lake Dunstan, Central Otago residents are being urged to use their voice to determine what the next 30 years of the lake will look like.
Lake Dunstan Charitable Trust (LDCT) is partnering with Shaping our Future, a community-focused non-profit organisation, to hold surveys and workshops about the lake.
From tomorrow until the end of April (excluding weekends and public holidays), there will be intermittent spraying in and around Lake Dunstan to control Lagarosiphon in our waterways.
This work is dependent on suitable weed, water, and weather conditions and therefore the timing is subject to change.
Diquat in gel form will be used to treat aquatic weeds and will be applied by both aerial and boats based spraying methods.
There is be a 24-hour stand-down on swimming, fishing, or taking water for irrigation or domestic supply once the spraying is complete.

The Lake Dunstan Charitable Trust has contracted the Shaping Our Future organisation to create a vision for Lake Dunstan this year.
As 2021 draws to an end, we reflect on this year's achievements, what 2022 holds for the trust and want to thank the Cromwell community for supporting our efforts to create a healthier and happier lake Dunstan for people and wildlife.
