This stretch of the Murray River remains on alert due to the Blue-Green Algae causing problems, I was wondering if anyone had come across it in any of these parts, started at the Hume I believe due to low water and temperature levels etc.

It seems to be more of an issue this year than previous years.?

Yep it is bad at the hume Weir and it is now down to 3.6% and Dropping, Interestingly though some amazing sights appear and it is well worth a look around.

The old bridge at Ebden




and again



There are more in the water but need a boat or canoe to get to them. We'll be taking the metal dectator next time we are out there.

I know its not looking good waterwise, but it shows what the water levels were like in the earlier days, before the weirs.I spend abit of time on Houseboats on the lower Murray, and it is very interesting to see old wrecks and structures coming to light after so many years.I havnt noticed any Algy around Pompoota or up as far as Lock 1, but that was 5 months ago
