Swimming in recreational waters

West Lakes is a great place to enjoy water activities. Most of the time the water is clean and safe for recreational purposes.

However, for two to three days after rain, the lake can be affected by polluted stormwater so activities such as swimming, windsurfing and canoeing should be avoided.
