Maitland City Council is warning about possible blue green algae blooms at lagoons at Walka Water Works, Telarah and Rathluba.

With the weather warming up, the potential for blue-green algae in Maitland’s waterways begins to grow.

When conditions are favourable for algae growth, blooms can occur, which can be seen as a thick paint-like accumulation on the water’s surface or as small green floating dots.

Maitland council's development and environment manager David Simm said council would monitor lagoons at Walka Water Works, Telarah and Rathluba.
