Alberta Health Services has lifted a water quality advisory for Buffalo Lake at Rochan Sands.
The advisory was put in place on July 31, due to elevated levels of fecal bacteria in the water. It was the same advisory issued for Aspen Beach at Gull Lake, which has not had its advisory lifted.
Water quality has returned to an acceptable level at Buffalo Lake and the health risk is low for usage of the beach for recreational purposes, says AHS.
The agency also advised visitors to never drink or cook with untreated water directly from any lake or reservoir, at any time.
