Al­gae re­mains

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - News -

A blue-green al­gae warn­ing re­mains for Lake Charlegrar­k in the west Wim­mera with au­thor­i­ties warn­ing peo­ple to avoid di­rect con­tact with af­fected wa­ter.

The Parks Vic­to­ria warn­ing has been in place since mid-jan­uary and the hope was that rain would flush the al­gae from the wa­ter­way or cooler con­di­tions dur­ing win­ter would halt its progress. Warn­ing signs re­main at the lake and a gen­eral warn­ing is for peo­ple to avoid swim­ming in af­fected ar­eas or to use wa­ter for cook­ing, drink­ing, wash­ing or show­er­ing.
