Rachael Dunlop on ABC Goulburn Valley, on the River Murray algal bloom

I was on ABC Radio Goulburn Valley this morning talking about the current blue green algae bloom. This was in response to reports that people are ignoring warnings and swimming and wake boarding in affected parts of the river.

I then saw a report on ABC News where a farmer said not only is he letting his cattle drink from the river, but he's also drinking the water! This is a very bad idea. When health authorities put out warnings, they don't just do it for shits and giggles.
