On July 3, 2020, the Capital Regional District (CRD) advised, in consultation with Island Health, that there is a blue-green algae bloom at Prior Lake.
Blue-green algae can produce cyanotoxins. Visitors are advised to avoid swimming in the lake and to keep animals on a leash to prevent them from drinking or swimming in the lake until the advisory has been lifted.
For further information please contact CRD Regional Parks at 250-478-3344.
