Blue-green algae concerns on Algoma Lakes

The Blue-Green algae problem appeared on about 8 Algoma lakes this summer. The causes and consequences are outlined in this article and are very difficult to treat. The confirmed affected lakes were Devil, Bright and Desbarat, Bass, Echo, Upper Island, Lower Island, Round and Twin.

This could happen on Matinenda if we are not vigilant. More articles from Algoma Public Health on algae can be found here.
