LLYNGWYN TO REMAIN CLOSED FOR SUMMER SEASON 2023.
We would like to provide an update on LLyngwyn lake. On April 7th the club undertook survey of the lake using and underwater camera and drone footage from above. The result was that we have a large spread of filamentous algae covering the whole lake and a thick layer of ammonia rich soil on the bed.
On the 15th of April, after a week of sunshine we had another large bloom of the surface algae which seems the be a reoccurring issue when the sun comes out. Samples were taken and sent to our team dealing with the issue, however, we must now wait for the water temperature to rise to 16°C before we can take another sample for the report to be conclusive.
A water treatment plan is being drawn up and the club is doing everything we can to have the lake back open before the winter season commences.
We appreciate everyone's patience at this time. We know how disappointing this is but if we take the time to sort it out the root causes then hopefully this is an issue we can avoid happening again.
