Recreational Water Warning - Four Springs Lake

15 April 2019

Council advises that Blue-green Algae have been identified at Four Springs Lake.

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.

Signage has been erected at the boat ramp adjacent to the lake.

•   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

The Department of Health and Human Services has been notified and recommends health warnings for the above location until analysis results indicate the water body is safe for general public use. Council will continue to monitor water quality and signage will be updated once further sampling results have been received.

If you have any queries regarding this matter, please contact Council on (03) 6393 5300 between 8:30am and 5:00pm, Monday to Friday.

I would like to...
