The alert for Mullum Mullum Creek has been removed.

EPA sent an officer to the Mullum Mullum Creek at Ringwood Street, Ringwood on Thursday, 24th July after receiving a report of a brownish yellow substance in the water.

The officer confirmed the discharge was most likely attributable to works being undertaken further upstream and soil entering the waterway, causing the observed discolouration.

EPA has taken samples, which may allow us to pinpoint a source.
