Blue Green Algae Alert for Curdies Inlet - Peterborough

The Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP) are investigating a blue-green algae bloom at Curdies River Estuary at Peterborough.
Blue-green algae can be harmful to humans and animals, so we urge people and pets to avoid direct contact with affected water until notice. This includes swimming, fishing and boating activities.
Do not eat any whole fish, shellfish or crustaceans from either water bodies. Fish caught from affected water should have its gills and guts removed prior to cooking.
Anyone who comes into contact with affected water should immediately wash in fresh water and seek medical advice if they experience any illness.
Signage is being installed at both locations to advise visitors of the algal bloom. We will continue monitoring both water bodies until the bloom disperses and advise when they are safe for use again.
