Lyme disease is always a risk throughout our region during spring, summer and fall.

Blue-Green Algae Bloom Confirmed at McNally’s Bay on Upper Rideau Lake

The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit recently alerted residents of McNally’s Bay on Upper Rideau Lake of a potential blue-green algae bloom following calls from concerned residents.  As blue-green algae blooms may be hazardous to health and can only be confirmed through testing, the Health Unit issued notices with precautions residents could take while waiting for results from the Ministry of the Environment.  Results have now come in and confirm that the specimens collected are blue-green algae and that toxins are present. Residents of McNally’s Bay using water from the lake for drinking purposes should use an alternate source as boiling does not remove the toxin.  Pets and livestock should NOT be permitted to drink the water directly from the lake in this area.
