BLUE GREEN ALGAE
Levels of Blue-green algae at Red Cliffs, Psyche pumps, Mildura and Merbein continue to fluctuate, however, remain below red alert levels. We advise raw water customers to top up tanks and be prepared to isolate their supply if the levels rise again. We are continuing to monitor levels from Boundary Bend to Lock 9.
