    The Merlynston Creek is no longer impacted by surface water runoff from the SKM Coolaroo premises, and EPA has a suite of remedial notices in place that requires SKM to prevent further impact to the community and environment. However, bacterial levels are still not safe for recreational use and therefore it is advised that members of the public and their pets should continue to avoid the waterways. The public should also avoid fishing and any other recreational activities at Jack Roper Reserve Lake or creek until further notice.
