Muckross Bay clear from blue green algae

Published: 18th October 2016

Muckross Bay in Kesh has been declared clear from blue green algae.

In September Fermanagh and Omagh District Council erected signage at Muckross Bay to warn visitors of the presence of blue green algae and to advise that adults, children and animals should avoid contact with the algae and the water close to it due to its harmful effects.

The most recent water quality tests undertaken by the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) at Muckross Bay have confirmed that the incidence of blue green algae has passed.

Blue green algae warning signage at Muckross Bay has been taken down by Council officers.

Any concerns regarding blue green algae in the district should be reported directly to DAERA, 028 6862 8882 or Fermanagh and Omagh District Council’s Environmental Health Service on 0300 303 1777.
