Blue-green al­gae (Cyanobac­te­ria) bloom ad­vi­sories lifted

The McLeod River Post - - Viewpoint -

Re­cent weather has cooled lake and reser­voir wa­ter tem­per­a­tures to such an ex­tent that blue-green al­gae is no longer a health con­cern, in­clud­ing in 21 bod­ies of wa­ter in North Zone, all of which had pre­vi­ously been placed un­der blue-green al­gae (cyanobac­te­ria) bloom ad­vi­sories.

Ef­fec­tive im­me­di­ately, Al­berta Health Ser­vices has lifted the blue-green al­gae (cyanobac­te­ria) bloom ad­vi­sories for:

• Pad­dle River Dam Reser­voir

• Devil’s (Matchayaw) Lake

• Lac Belle­vue

• Mons Lake

• Bon­nie Lake • Fawcett Lake

• Steele (Cross) Lake • Hutch lake

• Call­ing Lake

• Goose Lake

• Stoney Lake • Lac La Biche Lake

• Ke­hewin Lake

• Garner Lake

• Thun­der Lake

• Lac La Nonne

• Les­sard Lake

• Vin­cent Lake

• Moose Lake • Bap­tiste Lake

• Isle Lake

As al­ways, vis­i­tors and res­i­dents are re­minded to never drink or cook with un­treated wa­ter di­rectly from any lake or reser­voir, at any time.
