The Five Hills Health Region advises the public to avoid swimming and other in-water recreational activities
in lakes and rivers that have been significantly impacted by Algae blooms.

It is recommended that residents avoid algae scum areas at this time,
including keeping pets away, refraining from water contact sports
and taking care not to drink or bathe in the water.
