Posted by on Sep 11, 2015 in Latest News | Comments Off on WARNING ALGAL GROWTH IN DOG PONDS

THERE IS A HIGH LEVEL OF ALGAL GROWTH IN THE PARK FARM DOG POND WHICH IS POTENTIALLY HARMFUL

Lab tests have come back showing algal counts of Anabaena in the sample greater
than the threshold at which the EA require warning signage. Six
signs have been erected to cover the likely access routes
to the pond, some have been put close to the pond and some a bit further away so
dog walkers please be aware and call your dog
to close control.

DO NOT ENTER OR ALLOW PETS TO ENTER OR DRINK THE WATER
