Algae Detected in Curdies River Estuary and Yambuk Lakes
High, toxic Blue-green Algae levels have been detected in the Curdies River Estuary at Peterborough and the Yambuk Lakes at Yambuk.
Warning signs have been installed at both locations and authorities are urging people to avoid direct contact with the water until the bloom disperses, including allowing pets to enter the water.
The sample point for Curdies River is at the Peterborough boat ramp. Lake Yambuk is sampled from the boat ramp side of the floating jetty on Carrolls Road.
Recreational activities of any type should be avoided at impacted locations, including swimming, fishing and boating activities.
