Wattle Range Council will be working with local police to stamp out anti-social behaviour at the Millicent Swimming Lake.
Council’s Chief Executive Officer, Ben Gower said he is disappointed with the frequency of incidents that are occurring at the lake.
“Staff are dealing with broken glass at the swimming lake on an almost daily basis,” he said. “It is disappointing that this popular facility, enjoyed by so many including young families, is being disrespected by a minority."
“The Millicent Swimming Lake, its surrounds and the adjacent carpark have both been declared Dry Zone and penalties do apply for any persons found to be consuming or in possession of alcohol in this area. This is to prevent the anti-social behaviour associated with alcohol consumption.”
The Millicent Police have been alerted to the apparent rise in anti-social behaviour and will be regularly monitoring the area.
