I sought agreement from the Council on the installation of a bench and bin on the Northwood side of the lake some months back. This is now on the 2015 schedule for the construction crew. The bench will be in place for the summer months. It will be located near the Swords Road and away from the rooting zones of the important amenity trees.
I have also been working with the Council on putting plans in place to prevent the growth of algae in the Northwood / Santry Dense Lake. A suitable environmentally friendly chemical has been identified and is currently being sourced from the UK which prevents the development of the blanket weed when the first signs of an algal bloom are observed. This is normally applied in late April or early May.
