Blue-Green Algae blooms have formed on the shorelines of Cross Lake.
To protect yourself and your pets, avoid contact with blue-green algae blooms; do not swim or wade in water where blue-green algae is visible; do not drink or cook with water from the lake.
If contact occurs, wash with clean water as soon as possible.
Persons experiencing illness after having contact with lake water are advised to call Health Link at 811.
For detailed information, go to Alberta Health Services Blue Green Algae Health Advisories. Please refer to the specific advisory for this lake.
Blue-green algae bloom advisories are issued and rescinded by Alberta Health Services. Typically, advisories are lifted in late autumn, when water temperatures are so cool that blue green algae growth is no longer supported.
