Sturgeon Lake Lagoon Blue-Green Algae Advisory Lifted

Some of you have expressed some concern over the advisory that was recently posted by the Haliburton, Kawartha, Pine Ridge (HKPR) District Health Unit. That advisory was lifted today after the Ministry of the Environment’s testing at the affected area determined that the toxins produced by the algae bloom no longer pose a threat to human health. The algae bloom did not affect the waters off of Sturgeon Point. You can read the news release by clicking here.
Any health advisories affecting the area around Sturgeon Point will be posted right here on this web site. Serious advisories that impact our normal activities on and around the lake will be sent out by email to the SPA email distribution list as soon as we are aware of them. If you’re not on that list drop us a line and ask to be put on it.
