Ellendale Pool water test results normal

Following last week’s warning to stay out of the water at Ellendale Pool (about 45km south of Geraldton), recent results of water testing have come back normal.

However the City of Greater Geraldton’s Environmental Health and Sustainability Manager, Mark Chadwick, encourages users to be cautious due to warm water temperatures and warns the presence of Amoeba is still a risk.

“Generally speaking primary contact recreation including diving, or other activities where water may potentially be thrust up the nose should be avoided,” he said.

“This is particularly important for young children, which potentially may represent the higher risk group of disease occurrence."
