Unauthorised letter claiming to be from Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM

Council has been made aware of an unauthorised letter claiming to be from Mayor Gillian Aldridge OAM that has been posted to some residents within Mawson Lakes.

The letter, which concerns a recent change in water quality at Cascade Lake, was recently distributed by an unknown source and is not linked to Council or been officially released by either the Mayor or Administration.

We apologise for any confusion this correspondence may have caused. If you have any concerns, please contact Council on (08) 8406 8222 or via

The condition of the lake has improved since Council put in measures to rectify issues involving odour and discolouration last month. You can view Council’s latest update on the matter here.
