The Blue-Green Algae red alert warning for Lake Cullulleraine has been lifted by Lower Murray Water (LMW).
Results from sampling undertaken by LMW over the past fortnight show that levels of blue-green algae have dropped below red alert level and will now be more manageable.
LMW managing director Anthony Couroupis is satisfied with the progress.
“Our Water Quality Team has continued to monitor Lake Cullulleraine closely and it is pleasing to see levels of blue-green algae have reduced and the red alert lifted,” he said.
“As always, we encourage water users to exercise caution before entering a waterbody as the algal situation can change quickly. We will continue routine monitoring of areas along the Murray River.”
