New Lake at Colwyn? - Posted: 7 months ago by Mallory
Hi to all at Colwyn!

Just wondering what the latest is with the new lake? Where will it be and when will it be complete?
Response by kinmel 7 months ago
Our weed control is multi-layered.

Our lake is kept filled by ground water from the surrounding hills, it enters the lake through a specially created reedbed that is being allowed to develop naturally. The habit captures the silt from the ground water and the new habitat feeds on the incoming nutrients which reduces the ability of weeds to grow.

The lake itself is protected by high TEC ultrasonics which destroys algae etc at cell level as it forms.

Of course the swans and ducks eat any weed that gets past all the other defences.

Thanks for suggesting grass carp, that's now first reserve!

I have seen the old lake but not the new one. From what I've read it sounds exciting.

Is it big enough for fast electrics eg Proboat Blackjack 29s and Voracity etc.

The usable lake is effectively an 80 metre circle.
