New red alert for blue green algae

Locals near the Murray River downstream of the Mildura Marina to Wentworth are advised not to make direct contact with the water after a red level blue-green algae alert was issued for the water there.

It's also in place for Mount Disperson and people are also advised not to eat mussles or crayfish from those area. 
Contact with the water may also post a threat to livestock and pets.  Water New South Wales and Lower Murray Water say they will continue to monitor those sites and report results as soon as they're avalible.
