Good news at last for dog-walkers and users of Chasewater in general who may let dogs swim in the water – the alert for blue green algae that was found in the lake back in August has now cleared, and the lake is now safe for your pets, according to the official Chasewater Facebook Account, run by Staffordshire County Council.
Blue Green Algae Update
The Rangers have assessed the water, and have found there is no longer any trace of the Blue Green algae, and have removed all signage.
It is now safe to allow your dogs into the water, but please remember it is a non swimming lake, and swimming is not allowed.
While the naturally occurring algae was present, people were warned not to let their dogs swim in the water, and not to bathe there (although that’s never recommended) and signs had been put up warning of the hazard.
