Water testing by the Meander Valley Council at Four Springs Lake has revealed blue green algae to be currently present.

Please be advised that:

Blue Green Algae may pose a risk to water users and anyone who draws water directly from the water body. Swimming, canoeing and any other recreational use should be avoided until further notice.

  • Contact may cause sickness in humans and animals.
  • Contact may cause skin and eye irritation.
  • At low levels of algal density fish are safe for consumption if cooked – consume at own risk.

Meander Valley Council will continue to monitor water quality.
