Blue Green Algae Update

The Blue Green Algae situation at Lake Wallace has improved and the red alert has been lifted.

There has been a significant reduction in Blue Green Algae levels at Lake Wallace and the consistently good results have now allowed the red alert, limiting direct contact by humans or animals, to be lifted. With the red alert lifted activities on the lake can now return to normal.

More information on algae alerts is available from the algal information line maintained by the NSW Office of Water, at 1800 999 457 or the NSW Office of Water web page at

Caring for our community is one of the principal activity areas adopted in the Lithgow Community Strategic Plan 2026.
