Media contacts

Media enquiries about algae should be directed to the WaterNSW’s media team:

The algal information line on 1800 999 457 provides recorded information on algal alerts.

To report suspected algal blooms during business hours, phone the algal coordinator in your area of the state. If you cannot reach the coordinator, please contact the secretariat first, then the media officer, followed by Statewide Algal Advisory Group Secretariat.

To report suspected algal blooms at all other times, phone the Environment Hotline on 131 555.
