Following consistently warm weather the lake is showing signs of algal blooms, some of which appear to be blue-green algae. Samples will be analysed to confirm which species are present.
Blue-green algae can cause severe skin rashes, eye irritation, vomiting, diarrhoea, fever and pains in muscles and joints.
It is a sensible precaution for you, your children, and your animals to avoid contact with the lake water at this time.
