Blue-green algae advisories lifted for eight central Alberta lakes

Alberta Health Services has lifted blue-green algae health advisory for many Alberta lakes.

Recent weather has cooled lake and reservoir water temperatures so that blue-green algae is no longer a health concern. This includes eight of water bodies in Central zone, 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: Alix Lake, Astotin Lake, Bigelow Reservoir, Buck Lake, Haunted Lake, Little Beaver Lake, Wapasu Lake and Windsor Lake

AHS has also lifted the water quality advisory for Ebeling Beach at Aspen Beach Provincial Park on Gull Lake.

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