Pugneys Watersports Centre and Country Park


Important Information

Watersports suspended

Routine water testing at Pugneys Country Park has found high levels of bacteria in the water that can cause illness, which in some cases could be serious.

As a precautionary measure watersports at Pugneys have been temporarily suspended and people must keep out of the water. Dog owners are also being asked to ensure their pets stay away from the lake.

We will be working with partner agencies to identify the source of the bacteria and ensure action is taken as soon as possible.

In the meantime, water testing will continue and we will keep people informed when the situation changes.

We're sorry for any inconvenience.
