A Blue-Green Algae advisory has been issued for Winagami Lake.
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Blue-green algae bloom advisories are issued and rescinded by Alberta Health Services.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.
The Winagami wading pool has been closed because it is no longer feasible to maintain the aging infrastructure and repair vandalism. Planning is already underway to provide new recreation opportunities (options include a bike park and/or a larger playground).
