Advisory for Lake Unique, New Brunswick

[Return to New Brunswick | Return to province list]

Lake Unique

Type: Cyanobacteria Bloom  -  Inactive

Issued: 8/10/2017


New Brunswickers are advised to be aware of the potential health risks posed by algal blooms in Lake Unique, which started appearing in 2010. Before entering a body of water, take note of its quality and, where a blue-green algae bloom is suspected, (paint-like scum and/or blue/green or other discoloured water) avoid swimming, water-skiing or other recreational activities; - Do not consume water where blue-green algae blooms are found even after boiling because boiling does not remove the toxins; - Fish caught from water where blue-green algae blooms are present should have all its organs removed and be thoroughly rinsed with potable water before it is cooked and consumed.
