Advisory issued for Miquelon Lake
Alberta Health Services is advising people not to swim or wade in Miquelon Lake due to elevated levels of fecal coliforms.
The advisory extends to not drinking untreated lake water, doing so can cause vomiting and diarrhea.
The elevated levels of fecal coliforms were detected while testing the lake water at the beach location. Current levels could cause skin, ear and eye infections.
AHS Environmental Public Health officers will continue to monitor the contamination levels and the advisory will remain in effect until further notice.
