We recommend:

  • Avoid all contact with affected water.
  • People who come into contact with the affected water should wash affected skin immediately in clean water.
  • Do not use affected water for cooking, drinking, washing or showering. Boiling the affected water will not make it safe to use.

Blue-green algae facts:

  • Blue-green algae occurs naturally and can be dangerous to humans and animals.
  • Characteristic signs of algae contact are skin rashes or itchiness, sore eyes, ears and nose; or if swallowed, nausea or vomiting.
  • It is not possible to predict how long the algae will remain at high levels within the lake.

We will continue to regularly monitor the lake and keep you informed of the situation through the media, Facebook and Twitter.
