DELWP has established an Incident Management Team to respond to reports of a brown sludge-like substance in waters off the coast of Port Fairy.

Water samples are being collected from in and around The Passage, and the samples will be analysed to identify any alteration to water quality.

Drone monitoring will also take place, with an update will be provided to the community once results are available.

Members of the public are advised to avoid direct contact with water in and around The Passage until further notice.
