Red Alert warning lifted at Burrendong Dam

12 April 2019

The Red Alert at Burrendong Dam has now been lifted following two consecutive results below red alert levels.

Blue-green algae concentrations have decreased over the past couple of weeks, however as some potentially toxic species are still present water uses should avoid algal scums if present in water sources.

As the Red Alert has been lifted there are no longer any restrictions on recreational activities in the lake.
