Municipality of North Cowichan staff say a blue-green algae bloom is visible at Somenos Lake near the Drinkwater Road fishing dock.

“Lake visitors are advised to avoid areas near the visible blue-green sheen, which appears as surface scum on the lake,” said Ernie Mansueti, the municipality’s Parks and Recreation director. “Pet owners are advised to keep animals on a leash and to prevent them from drinking or swimming in the lake.”

Cowichan Lake suffered a non-toxic algae bloom in May.
