Council issues algae alert for waterway

CLARENCE Valley Council is issuing another alert for a waterway contaminated by algae.

Following the recent warnings for the Blue and Green Pools in Angourie, an interim warning is issued about the possible contaminant of the potentially toxic cyanophyta (blue-green algae) at Alumy Creek.

People, stock and domestic animals should not enter the water as blue-green algae are known to cause illness or even death in animals.

Dogs are particularly susceptible as they ingest algae by licking their coats.

Boiling the water does not inactivate algal toxins.
