Lake at Lysterfield Park closed
Thursday 6 December, 2012
The lake at Lysterfield Park is temporarily closed to all water recreational use. An outbreak of blue green algae has been recorded at the lake and the temporary closure is to ensure public safety.
Clear signage is in place at multiple sites around the park and visitors are discouraged from swimming, canoeing or sailing on the lake.
Parks Victoria staff regularly monitor the water quality at the site and will be taking samples for testing twice a week until the blue green algae levels have cleared.
Blue-green algae occurs naturally and can be dangerous to humans and animals. People who come into contact with affected water should wash affected skin immediately in clean water.
The lake will re-open as soon as the water quality is safe for use.
Park visitors are still able to enjoy the other facilities provided at the Lysterfield Lake Picnic Area.
