From 1999, a significant project for Friends of Currimundi Lake was the involvement in extensive ongoing discussions with many groups to find a suitable solution to thick silt deposits in the Lake and the build up of a massive sand plug at the mouth of Currimundi Lake. After many years of consultation a major dredging operation was agreed upon and at conclusion, cleared the silt and sand plug East of the Nicklin Way. Friends of Currimundi Lake joined with the Currimundi Catchment Care Group to enter Currimundi Beach in the Keep Australia Beautiful Clean Beach Challenge and as a result, won the title of Queensland’s Cleanest Beach 2004.
