Alberta Health Services issued the advisory for Buck Lake on Friday afternoon, after blooms of blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) were discovered in the water.

· Do not swim or wade (or allow your pets to swim or wade) in any areas where blue-green algae (cyanobacteria) is visible. Residents should keep their pets away from the water, as well, the advisory said. In addition, since infants consume more water relative to body weight, parents may wish to use an alternate drinking water source (e.g. bottled water) for preparing infant formula during the summer months if their lake is prone to blue-green algal blooms. "They may produce floating scums on the surface of the water or may cause the water to take on paint-like appearance".

The algae is risky for both humans and pets and can cause skin irritation, sore eyes and throat, fever, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea within hours of contact.

Alberta lakes may be experiencing more algal blooms because of development in local watersheds, but there has also been an increase in water monitoring.

· Do not feed whole fish or fish trimmings from this lake to your pets.
