Blue-Green Algae Alert

A red alert level for Blue-green algae has been issued for the Murray River from Red Cliffs to Mildura. A red alert level warning remains in place for Wentworth. Visitors to the Murray River Reserve between these locations, Kings Billabong Park and Murray-Sunset NP - Wallpolla Island should avoid contact with the water. People should not undertake recreational activities where they may be coming into direct contact with the water. Contact with the water may also pose a threat to pets. 
 
People are advised not to enter the water, not to drink untreated water or use the water for other domestic purposes, including cooking and showering/bathing in untreated water while a red alert level warning is in place. Boiling the water will not remove algal toxins.
 
People should not eat mussels or crayfish from red alert warning areas. Any fish caught should be cleaned and washed thoroughly in uncontaminated water and any internal organs disposed of before consumption.
 
Blue-green algae usually appear as green paint-like scums on the water, near the edges, or as greenish clumps throughout the water. It makes the water appear dirty, green or discoloured and generally has a strong musty or earthy odour.
 
Blue-green algae occur naturally and can reproduce quickly in favourable conditions where there is still or slow-flowing water, abundant sunlight and sufficient levels of nutrients.
 
It is not possible to predict how long the algae will remain at high levels. Regular monitoring will continue, and the alert will be lifted as soon as the high levels of algae dissipate.
 
People who believe they may have been affected by blue-green algae are advised to seek medical advice.
