Blue-Green Algae Warning for Lake Eildon

Goulburn-Murray Water (GMW) has detected high blue-green algae levels within Lake Eildon.
Blue-green algae present a risk to the health of humans and animals. The algae detected may cause gastroenteritis if ingested. Characteristic signs of algae contact are skin rashes or itchiness; sore eyes, ears and nose; or if swallowed, nausea or vomiting.
The situation is being closely monitored by GMW and the following precautions are recommended:
  • People and pets should avoid contact with the water.
  • Untreated water should never be used for human consumption (e.g. drinking, cooking, showering, bathing, washing).
  • People who come into contact with the water should wash affected skin immediately in clean cold water.
  • Boiling the affected water will not make it safe to use. Blue-green algae release toxins into the water when heated.
You can determine if the warning is still current by visiting the GMW website https://www.g-mwater.com.au/water-operations/bga or by ringing 1800 013 357.
Please remember that water in Lake Eildon is not suitable for human consumption without first being properly treated.
