SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT UPDATE
Friday, August 26, 2016
There has been evidence that a blue-green algal bloom is occurring on Three Mile Lake. The MOECC took a sample on August 16, 2016 and tested it for microcystins. The result was 0.56 µg/L(micrograms per litre). The Ontario Drinking Water Quality Standard for microcystin-LR is a maximum acceptable limit of 1.5 μg/L or almost 3 times the test results. The "Guidelines for Canadian Recreational Water Quality: Third Edition" have a guideline of ≤ 20 μg/L or almost 40 times the test results.
However, Simcoe Muskoka Public Health decided to use extra caution and moved forward with public notification (Three Mile Lake Public Notice) regarding the potential blue-green algae bloom in Three Mile Lake without waiting for the results.
The information and notice will be posted in various locations (e.g. Twitter, Facebook, SMDHU website, Township website) and their media department has drafted a PSA to share with local media outlets since door-to door notification is not possible at this point in time.
They are advising against the following:
MOECC BUOY IN HAMMELL’S BAYThe MOECC has installed new equipment in Hammell’s Bay. It isa large bright yellow buoy with lights, so it will be visible at night. It is approximately one meter in diameter and half a meter above the water, with a small weather station on top.
