Marine Lake renovation

Work is well underway to clear the silt and get Marine Lake open for outdoor swimming once again.

The pandemic unleashed a passion for outdoor swimming across the country and Marine Lake can again be a valuable asset for the town for residents, workers and visitors alike.

Work is underway to ensure that swimming can return to the lake in summer 2021 while the sluice gates will be repaired or replaced to help manage the silt levels in the long term. The lake has been drained of water and the high Spring tides will naturally flush out most of the silt.
