Advisory on Algae

Advisory for all NSAs & Affiliates involved in secondary contact activities:

The recent dry weather has seen a higher occurrence of algal growth in the Marina Reservoir. Algae may collect at some parts of the reservoir, particularly in the direction of wind. Known as algal scum, they appear as greenish patches on the water surface.

Direct contact with algal scum may cause skin irritation.

 Please inform your participants to take the following precautions:

1.       Participants should avoid going into areas where there is algal scum, move toward water that is free from scum.

2.       Participants should rinse thoroughly with tap water if their skin comes into contact with algal scum

3.       Participants should wash all clothing and equipment that has come into contact with algal scum.
