Possible Toxic Algae Bloom

Two small localized algae blooms have been identified on the north and north west end of the lake as containing cyanobacteria.
This does not necessary mean that the  blooms contain toxins but extra caution must be exercised in these situations.
  • All human and animals should avoid any exposure to these blooms. They are highly visible and all precautionary measures must be taken to not expose the human body to the substances and keep all animals away from the shoreline ensuring no ingestion of the substances. 
  • Any lake owners which use the lake water for drinking, bathing and other personal use, should refrain from this activity until it is determine that the  blooms do not contain toxin substances. 
  • Any exposure to the blooms which cause symptoms of nausea, vomiting or skin rashes, should be reported immediately to the nearest medical facility and treatment rendered.
 A FOLLOWUP NOTICE WILL BE PROVIDED ONCE WE KNOW THE RESULTS OF THE ANALYSIS FOR TOXINS.
