    Take care while driving on wet tracks

    This summer weather is predicted to be wet. Roads and tracks are easily damaged during wet weather and can only be repaired once the weather clears up and the roads are well dried out. When visiting parks keep an eye out for temporary track closures and if it’s raining or the track looks soft find an alternative route.
     
    When driving your car or four-wheel drive in a park keep in mind these basic tips:
    -     stay off wet tracks or recently graded roads
    -     drive only on formed roads
    -     take notice of signage and only use roads that are open to the public and safe to do so
    -     avoid wheel spin and churning up track surfaces
    -     remove fallen trees or limbs from roads; don’t create new tracks by driving around them

    Blue Green Algae Alert Current for Lake Eildon

    A blue green algae warning issued by Goulburn Murray Water for Lake Eildon dated Friday 17 July 2020 remains in place due to widespread and consistently present scums of Gomphosphaeria & Dolichospermum Straight (large). Contact with affected water may cause harm to humans and animals. For your safety, we recommend:

    ·       No swimming
    ·       No drinking water (unless it is signed as “potable”)
    ·       No water sports
    ·       No dogs in water (in areas where dogs are allowed e.g. Jerusalem Creek Camping Area)
     
    For additional relevant information, please refer to the Goulburn Murray Water webpage accessed via the following link: https://www.g-mwater.com.au/news/bga

    Stay safe this summer around lakes and rivers

    Inland waterways may have hazards such as strong fast-flowing currents, colder than expected water temperature and submerged branches and debris. Always heed warning signs and advice even if you are not planning to go in the water and be aware of changing weather conditions. Always wear a lifejacket when boating, fishing or using a watercraft. Flash flooding can occur quickly due to heavy rainfall. Water levels may rise quickly and without warning.
