A couple of photos of the lake, taken this morning.
The water was so still this morning!
While it’s usually quiet in the mornings, there isn’t going to be any swimming for beach goers for a while. Several beaches at this area of the lake are now closed. It seems some pipe got damaged, resulting in untreated sewage draining into the lake. From what I’ve read, the water tests were still testing safe, but the province closed some beaches to be on the safe side.
This is unusual only in regards to the cause. The usual reason for beach closures are high algae levels, which has been an ongoing problem on the lake for decades, or high e. coli levels from bird poop.
And that, kids, is why we use chlorine in pools! 😉
