Dangerous levels of blue-green algae at Richardson’s Lagoon pose a potential risk to public safety, according to Parks Victoria.
Parks Victoria ranger in charge Brooke Ryan said warning signs had been installed at the lagoon near Torrumbarry to advise visitors the water was not to be used for consumption, to avoid contact with skin and eyes and refrain from swimming and other water-based activities, including angling.
‘‘Algal blooms are known for posing risk to pets, livestock, water supplies and recreation activities so we are asking everybody to be aware of the risks of coming into contact with the algae,’’ she said.
