Health Warning

The council parks department regularly conduct tests of the water at Yeadon Tarn the latest of which has revealed some signs of campylobacter. This could be because of a number of potential sources – increased field fertilisation, new birds arriving etc.

As a precaution the following health notice has been issued: -

- Thoroughly wash hands directly after completing activities in the water.
- All cuts to be covered by waterproof plasters.
- Avoid gulping water down if you become immersed in the tarn.
- Do not contemplate water based activities if unwell or still recuperating from an illness.

It is hoped that this is a temporary contamination.
