Red Alert warning now lifted at Lostock Dam

FOLLOWING two consecutive results below Red Alert levels, the warning at Lostock Dam has now been lifted.

Blue-green algae concentrations have decreased over the past couple of weeks.

However, as some potentially toxic species are still present, water users should avoid algal scums or water where it is discoloured.

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