ADVISORY: Blue-green algae
Published 08:34 on 10 Aug 2017
The club was advised by the Canal and Rivers Trust on 7th August 2017 that a bloom of blue-green algae has been reported on Bittell Reservoirs. We believe that this is relates more specifically to Lower Bittell Reservoir.
Neither our keeper, Fred Rollins, nor club members who have been on duty recently, have seen any evidence of blue-green algae on our sailing water, Upper Bittell Reservoir. Nevertheless, this remains a possibility during periods of warm weather and light winds and we would like to bring this to the attention of club members and their families. We have emailed all current club members and created a web page in the members section containing guidance from the RYA on blue-green algae.You will need to login to view this page.
