Blue Green algae at Apex Lake

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.
