Blue Green Algae
Consumers are advised that a Blue Green Algae Red Alert has been issued for the Murray River between the townships of Red Cliffs and Merbein within the Mildura region. This situation is unlikely to adversely impact any major school holiday activities. It is also important to note that Mildura's reticulated town water supplies remain unaffected and are totally safe to drink and use.
With the current Red Alert, it is advised that people do not come into direct contact with the water, and avoid activities such as water skiing, wake boarding, fishing and swimming in the affected areas. Caution should also be taken by pet owners in relation to paddling in the shallows or allowing pets to drink water straight out of the river.
In conjunction with local water authorities, Mildura Tourism and local tourism industry operators take pride in providing the most accurate and reliable information so visitors can remain informed when planning a trip to and within Mildura.
While the algae bloom is unfortunate, due to the cool overnight conditions, the red alert may not remain for an extended period. To keep up to date with the latest information, head to the Lower Murray Water website. Click here to read the Blue Green Algae in Victorian Waterways Fact Sheet.
