SDC are advised by the Environment Agency that after the weekly sampling, the Blue – Green algae levels are still above threshold in Apex Park.
Weekly sampling will continue. Warning signs will remain in place. Our advice continues to be:
- Dogs should not be allowed to drink, swim or paddle in the water
- Fishing is not permitted
- Do not eat fish caught from the water
- No swimming
- Avoid all contact with the water
- Observe and abide by notices surrounding the water
Anyone who has come into contact with the water containing blue-green algae should wash with fresh water immediately. If they become ill, they should obtain urgent medical attention.
