Blue-green algae levels

All persons are warned that blue-green algae can be present in Fitzroy River Water's storage areas and may affect the health of the persons coming into contact with the water. The recreation hazard posed by blue-green algae varies according to the amount of algae present within the storage at any time.

The current recreation hazard level should be checked before recreational activities are undertaken. As the recreation hazard increases, so does the risk of being adversely affected through these activities.

The latest findings at Fitzroy River Water's recreational sites are below.
