The Red Alert level of Blue Green Algae has now been lifted at Lake Lyell by the NSW Office of Water.

With the reduced presence of blue green algae in the water, Lake Lyell is now suitable for water activities that involve direct contact by humans or animals.

Sampling of the lake will continue and an updated alert status will be reported when information becomes available.

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
