Most Winnipeg beaches had E. Coli levels within guidelines this week. Delta Beach on Lake Manitoba had a brief period of higher-than-normal levels, but they went down again by July 24.
Manitoba Conservation is asking the public to avoid swimming at Pelican Lake (Pleasant Valley and Ninette) and Killarney Lake Beach until the water is safer.
The public is also asked to avoid swimming in waters with visible algal bloom, and to prevent pets from drinking the water.
A new algal toxin advisory sign was posted at Pleasant Valley. It joins existing algal advisory, but not algal toxin advisories, at Ninette and Killarney Lake Beach.
One case of swimmer's itch was reported this week, at Whytewold Beach on Lake Winnipeg.
Complete information on advisories and water levels can be found at www.gov.mb.ca/conservation/waterstewardship/quality/beaches.html
