Water is finally flowing again in and out of Lake Conjola after the entrance was reopened to the ocean.

Shoalhaven council last week received approval to construct a pilot channel at the entrance of the lake to reduce the water level, which has been inundating properties and submerging yards and jetties for months.

Work began almost immediately and yesterday the water began to flow.
