Shoalhaven Council has manually opened the Tabourie Lake entrance following heavy rainfall.
Council used heavy machinery to open the entrance of Tabourie Lake in response to the lake reaching the opening trigger level of 1.3m AHD.
The lake was opened in accordance with the Tabourie Lake Entrance Management Policy.
People are asked to keep away from the edges of the dug channel and eroding banks following opening as these areas are very unstable and unsafe.
