Blue-Green Algae - What you need to know

Date Posted: June 21, 2017

The phosphate level in our lake is being significantly increased by our human activities. Phosphates help algae to grow and blue-green algae is particularly worrisome since it can produce a toxin that makes lake water unsafe for drinking, swimming, bathing, watering the gardens and for our pets. It pretty much spoils fun at the lake. The good news is we can all make a positive difference. See the attached brochure. For a printed copy for your fridge or coffee table please email info@olra.ca

The Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry monitors and regulates the lake water levels for Otter Lake and Little Otter Lake by removing and adding logs in the dam at the mouth of the Boyne River on Little Otter Lake. It is a tricky job since heavy rains can quickly increase lake levels from the large catch basin around our lakes. To see the lake level monitoring go to - https://www.hobolink.com/p/b35506827ed23569081f9b49b27a3af1 For this summer the MNR and F target range is between about 207.27 to 207.05 metres.
