Advisory for Twin Lakes, Ontario

[Return to Ontario | Return to province list]

Twin Lakes

Type: Cyanobacteria Bloom  -  Inactive

Issued: 8/22/2016


Algoma Public Health is advising residents and visitors of a confirmed blue-green algae bloom (cyanobacteria) on Twin Lakes in Hilton Township on St. Joseph_s Island. As a precautionary measure, Algoma Public Health recommends that residents: Not drink, swim in, bathe, or shower with the water, even water that passes through a treatment system since these systems are not capable of removing the toxins. Not use bleach to treat water as this can release toxins from the algae and will not make the water safe for drinking or cooking. Not eat fish caught during a blue-green algae bloom. Avoid activities involving direct contact with the water such as swimming and water skiing. Use alternative water sources such as bottled water or water obtained from a safe water supply. Restrict pet and livestock access to the water
