Ayr Creek Lagoon


In March 2018, we began a project to respond to community concerns about the odours from this naturally occurring foreshore lagoon. This project is working with the community and agency stakeholders to investigate the causes of the odour and provide options for management.

Water Quality Monitoring

We're now monitoring the water quality and Blue Green Algae levels of the Ayr Creek Lagoon on a monthly basis.
Results are shown in the table below.

As the local water manager, we will undertake management responsibilities as identified in the South Gippsland BGA Regional Coordination Plan.
