BLUE GREEN ALGAE UPDATE

FLPOA has decided to lift the ban on swimming in Fairview Lake. Testing for toxins has again shown toxins to be non-detectable or at such a low level that there is very little danger to humans swimming in Fairview Lake. However, there is still potential danger for dogs, especially small dogs that might drink water directly from the lake. It is still prudent to stay away from any visible floating scum where there is a concentration of dead algae cells. Other recreation such as boating, canoeing and fishing is still OK. Have a good summer.

Thanks Bob Dolphin
