May 31, 2016
UPDATED May 31 - The Municipality of North Cowichan is advising the public of a blue-green algae bloom at both Quamichan Lake near Art Mann Park and Somenos Lake near the Drinkwater Boat Ramp. Lake visitors are advised to avoid areas near the visible blue-green sheen, which appears as surface scum on the lakes. Pet owners are advised to keep animals on a leash and prevent them from drinking or swimming in the lake.
