Problems of dredging Lake Illawarra

A very thorough report on the management of Lake Illawarra is on public display. Dredging is not a part. But there has been a community push for dredging some parts of Lake Illawarra. This has been met with concern from wetlands scientists.The lake stores carbon in wetland soils helping mitigate climate change, and the scientists fear dredging could disrupt the ecosystem. Greens Councillor Cath Blakey is interviewed.
