Water conditions at Manitoba beaches favourable heading into weekend

  • Print

E. coli levels are within recreational water quality guidelines at all monitored beaches, Manitoba Conservation and Water Stewardship reported Friday.

No new algal blooms were reported this week.

Algae advisory signs remain posted at Pelican Lake (Ninette) and Killarney Lake beach.

"Algae blooms are difficult to predict and may form and then disperse quickly, or last for several days or weeks," the news release said. "Warm and calm weather coupled with relatively high nutrient loads provides ideal conditions for blue-green algae to develop.

"People are reminded to avoid swimming in water where severe algae blooms are visible and to prevent pets from drinking water along the shoreline.

"There were no new cases of swimmer’s itch reported this week at beaches across Manitoba. Swimmer’s itch advisory signs remain posted at Moose Lake Provincial Park, Winnipeg Beach (Lake Winnipeg) and Gull Lake."
