Lake Wyangan Now At Amber Alert Level
Wednesday, 08 Feb 2023Griffith City Council wishes to advise that the Blue Green Algae (BGA) alert level at Lake Wyangan is now amber, however some restrictions remain in place.
Council’s Principal Officer, Environment, Raju Maddi said Lake Wyangan users are urged to enter and exit the Lake from the Western Shore, as areas close to Jones Road remain at Red Alert.
“Testing is carried out across several areas of Lake Wyangan, with the western shore and middle of the Lake now at amber,” said Mr Maddi.
“However areas closer to Jones Road are still returning high levels and remains on red alert – please do not enter or exit the Lake from this location.”
Griffith Mayor, Doug Curran said he welcomes the news of the reduction in Blue Green Algae at Lake Wyangan, and encourages users to avoid the areas near Jones Road.
“Please adhere to Council warnings and remain on the western shore and centre of the Lake,” Councillor Curran said.
“Council is fully committed to finding a long-term, sustainable solution to the many issues affecting Lake Wyangan and this is a really good start.”
Sampling for algae will be undertaken twice a week, with the community updated if it drops back to red alert levels.
At amber alert levels blue-green algae are present in the water at low densities, possibly signalling the early stages of the development of a bloom, or a period where a bloom is declining. At these densities, the blue-green algae do not pose a threat to recreational, stock or domestic use.
