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:

RE: Public Health Notice

We realize that there are cottagers and residents on Three Mile Lake who are not members of Three Mile Lake Association but who have an interest in the lake and wish to keep informed about the current Public Health Notice.

As we deal with this current situation we’ll make sure that anyone who provides us with an email address will receive up to date information until the Public Health Notice is lifted. Email me at sfw@sympatico.ca and I will add you to our mailing list temporarily.

We urge you to become a member for 2017 by completing an application form and sending an etransfer or cheque for $50.00 any time after December 1, 2016.

Love Your Lake
Soon you will be having a Three Mile Lake volunteer visiting you with a package of interesting and important information. In the package will be a letter from Love Your Lake and Three Mile Lake Association. Please open this envelope and read it carefully. Inside the envelope is a survey that we strongly urge you to complete. This survey will tell us what is important to you and the number of surveys completed and returned will be used to measure the success of our Love Your Lake initiative.
