Health unit staff are watching for results from water samples, after blue-green algae was found on the Winnipeg River at Villeneuve Road. Other samples have been found in the area, such as Tunnel Island on Lake of the Woods and Lulu Lake at LacLu.

However, results have shown the concentration of toxins were at or below provincial standards. Algae blooms can look like pea soup or spilled paint.
