Blue-green algae warning

Traces of blue-green algae have been located in the tarn. Although there is no indication that the levels are dangerous, tests have been conducted to ascertain whether the tarn is safe to use. The results will be published once they have been received. Please consult the YSC website for further information.

Please follow standard procedures when using the tarn:

Avoid swimming in the water.
Avoid drinking the water.
Wash your hands before consuming food & drink, and wash them after you have finished on the water.

If you feel unwell following activities on or near the water please consult a health professional and notify a member of the committee. If you have any concerns or have a medical condition which may increase the risk then please do not use the tarn until the all clear has been given.
