Lake at Lysterfield Park reopens

Monday 21 January, 2013

The lake at Lysterfield Park has reopened to all recreational water use. Signage has been removed and it is now safe for visitors to swim, canoe or sail on the lake.

Readings of an outbreak of bluegreen algae were first recorded at the lake in Nov 2012. For the past week, readings have shown acceptable levels and the temporary closure is now over.

Parks Victoria will continue to regularly monitor the water quality.

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.
