Red alert for Blue-green algae issued for sections of the Menindee Lakes system

The Sunraysia Regional Algal Coordinating Committee today issued a red alert warning for toxic blue green algae for Lakes Wetherell, Tandure and Menindee in the Menindee Lakes system in western NSW.

Sunraysia RACC Chair, Owen Russell, said that the very high readings taken in these lakes were not surprising given the extreme temperatures and reduced inflows.
“A red alert level warning indicates that waters are unsuitable for recreational use or primary contact by domestic users and may also pose a threat to livestock and domestic animals.

“Town water supply to residents along the Sunset Strip and to the township of Menindee is safe to use, however it is not advisable to use the raw water from these lakes while the red alert is in place.”

Mr Russell said that a red alert for the Great Darling Anabranch continues with landholders advised to keep stock away from water at this site until the bloom passes.

Water users should use personal discretion at all times and avoid any water source that appears green or has a septic or musty odour.
Suspicious blooms can be reported to the NSW Office of Water on 1800 353 104.
