    recreation and safety notice

    Forecast rainfall associated with Ex Tropical Cyclone Debbie is likely to generate sufficient catchment runoff to Seqwater lakes, which may impact water quality. Seqwater is monitoring the situation closely, however, it is possible many primary contact recreation sites may be closed in the next 24 to 72 hours.

    Any closures will be made in the interest of public health and safety. Primary contact activities such as swimming and skiing could result in exposure to pathogens, which may cause infections and gastroenteritis-like symptoms.
