Water Quality Summary

Flood water - September 2016

Our supply and drainage network has been receiving flows from excess rainfall received in the local and upper catchment areas. We have been monitoring the water quality of these flows at key points with our system.

A summary of these locations and results for general water quality measurements are provided in the map which can be viewed here. MI-arrow-yellow.gif Water Quality Summary 21 September 2016

These water quality results are provided for information purposes only and should be taken into consideration when assessing the purpose of your water use.

Alert Level Descriptions
Red
These alert levels represent 'bloom' conditions. The 'blooms' should be considered to be toxic to humans and animals, and the water should not be used for potable water supply, stock watering, or for recreation. Algae signs need to be erected at site.
Amber
Blue-green algae may be multiplying in numbers. The water should be considered as unsuitable for potable use. The water remains suitable for recreational use.
Blue-green algae are first detected in the water at low amounts, possibly signalling the early stages of the development of a bloom. At these concentrations, the blue-green algae do not pose a threat to recreational, stock or domestic use.
