Check the EPA website for the latest update, but the following warning has been issued by the government.
“A large industrial fire at West Footscray has led to significant amounts of fire water running into Stony Creek. The water may reach the Yarra River and Hobsons Bay in the vicinity of Spotswood, Newport and Williamstown. EPA is currently supporting Emergency Services to respond to the incident. Avoid discoloured water until further notice.”
Until we have any more information, it would be highly recommended that all sailors and swimmers take caution and wash and shower well after any on/in water activities."
