Please see attached letter and educational material regarding blue-green algal blooms in Manitoba. If you have lakes or bodies of water that may form algal blooms, please make the fact sheet available to residents, cottagers and the public and place the poster in relevant public locations, including any publically accessible facilities near water and near beaches. The information should be made available throughout the algal bloom season, which is typically between June and late September.
The Departments of Manitoba Sustainable Development and Health, Seniors and Active Living appreciate your cooperation with the distribution of the materials.
If you have any questions, please contact Ryan Hewitt, Office of Drinking Water, at 204-948-1351
