July 28, CTV News:

The province sent out a warning Thursday evening about algae and elevated levels of E. coli at some Manitoba beaches.

A water sample taken at West Grand Beach showed levels of E. coli in the water exceeded provincial guidelines.

Algae advisories have also been posted for the Rivers Reservoir, Killarney Lake, and Pelican Lake near Ninette and Pleasant Valley.

Beachgoers are advised to avoid contact with green algae, swallowing lake water, swimming with an open cut or wound, and eating fish from the lake that appear unhealthy. Read more.
