BAYSWATER Council has awarded Drainflow Services Pty Ltd the tender for the dredging of Lake Bungana.

According to an officer’s report, the quality issues at Maylands Lakes were understood to be driven by excessive nutrient loads in the lakes.

The nutrient build up is one of the main drivers of algae bloom.

The contractor will be responsible for sediment treatment and disposal.
