Contaminated Water Advisory Lifted for Plamondon Whitesands Beach and McArthur Beach, on Lac La Biche Lake

Effective immediately, Alberta Health Services (AHS) has lifted the contaminated water advisories that were issued for two beaches on Lac La Biche: Plamondon Whitesands Beach (issued on August 7, 2015) and McArthur Beach (issued on July 24, 2015).
Water testing has confirmed that bacterial levels in the water at both Plamondon Whitesands Beach and McArthur Beach are now below maximum acceptable guidelines, meaning it is again safe to swim and wade at both beaches.
AHS will continue to sample this water as part of routine monitoring practices.
Please note: A Blue-green Algae (Cyanobacteria) advisory remains in place for Lac La Biche Lake, in full. To view all active health advisories, including the Blue-green Algae advisory for Lac La Biche Lake, visit http://www.albertahealthservices.ca/1926.asp.
