Title: Lake Atkinson Recreation Update
Post by: Editor on January 19, 2016, 10:52:00 AM
Lake Atkinson closed to all water based recreation 
 Date: 19/01/2016   - Seqwater

Lake Atkinson is temporarily closed to all water-based recreation due to the detection of blue-green algae.

Blue-green algae blooms generally occur in the warmer months due to increased water temperature, abundant nutrients and optimal light conditions.

Seqwater is closely monitoring algae levels and will re-open the lake when water quality results indicate it is appropriate to do so. Visitors are requested to observe the direction of staff and signage at the site.

For more information, a fact sheet on blue-green algae is available on our website www.seqwater.com.au/about/publications/fact-sheets (http://www.seqwater.com.au/about/publications/fact-sheets)
