Toxic Algae Found In Dog Death Lake
The Environment Agency has confirmed that initial tests have detected Blue-Green Algae in Brooklands Lakes and that they have sent further samples of the water for testing.
The algae growth is naturally-occurring and is potentially harmful to humans and toxic to animals. The Environment Agency has confirmed that there is no action that the Council can take to remove Blue-Green Algae from the Lakes or prevent it growing.
The Lakes will remain closed until the results of the further analysis have been received.
Parkvets Veterinary Hospital in Footscray, Sidcup, said it knew of a total of 10 dogs which had been affected, including the three which had died.
A spokesman, who could not give more details, said the surviving dogs were being kept under observation.
