An advisory from the CRD warns against swimming at Beaver Lake once again after high levels of bacteria were detected in the water.

Beaver Lake Beach at Elk/Beaver Lake Regional Park was recently reopened for swimming and recreational activities after being closed for nearly a month due to toxic blue-green algae bloom.

Authorities now advise swimmers to avoid that beach once again after water samples show that it may be unsafe for people and pets alike.

“As a precautionary measure, it is NOT recommended for people or pets to enter the water at Beaver Beach. Signs are being posted at the lake and further sampling is underway,” reads the advisory.
