Petition: Time to dredge Roath Park Lake

Cllrs Hopkins and Waldron by the silt bank in Roath Park Lake
Cllrs Robert Hopkins and Daniel Waldron are calling for dredging of the silt in Roath Park Lake as part of the planned work on the dam.

Local residents regularly express concerns about water quality in Roath Park Lake and, over recent years, we have seen frequent contamination from blue-green algae, grey water and other pollution entering the lake.

In light of the damaging publicity surrounding sewage discharges into our rivers and on our coastline, we want to be sure that every effort is made to safeguard and improve water quality in the lake. The planned engineering work on the Roath Park Dam is an opportunity to help achieve this by removing the unsightly and unhealthy build-up of silt at the northern end of the lake.”

If you share this concern and want to see the lake dredged of its silt, please sign the petition below:
