Question for Canberra locals and/or dam engineers

Anyone know why the water at the bottom of Lake Burley Griffin smells so bad? Sulfurous it is, as if the devil himself lives down there with the carp.

I would like to add that I have not been snorkelling down there without nose plugs, it's the run off from Scrivener Dam.

All this rain is probably dredging up all the dumped cadaver bits from the old Canberra Hospital (where the NMA is now).

Maybe that lost scout troupe is floating upwards too?

There are lots of old myths about that poxy lake...

So many fetid commonwealth schemes have been sunk there...
