Lake Moogerah closed to primary contact water activities from Saturday 4/01/14  
Date:  03/01/2014    - SEQWater

As a precautionary measure and in the interest of public safety, Lake Moogerah will be temporarily closed to primary contact activities from Saturday, 4 January 2014, due to the presence of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria).
Primary contact activities, including swimming and waterskiing, should be avoided.
Fishing, boating, canoeing and other paddle craft can still be used.

Blooms of cyanobacteria in lakes can pose significant risks to human health and lifestyle through the production of toxins and odorous compounds. Health risks can include headaches, nausea, muscular pains, diarrhoea and gastroenteritis.

Seqwater will be performing water quality testing at Lake Moogerah, and the lake will be re-opened to primary contact activities as soon as possible.

For further information, please see the Seqwater blue-green algae fact sheet

Lake Moogerah re-opened to water based activity 
 

Date:  15/01/2014   - SEQWater

Lake Moogerah has been re-opened to water-based recreation activities, following the recent closure for water quality issues.

The decision to re-open the lake follows Seqwater investigations and ongoing water quality testing. In line with routine advice, people should not drink raw (untreated) lake water.
