Scugog's Kinsmen Beach has been issued an advisory from the Durham Regional Health Department, as a blue-green algae has been discovered in Lake Scugog. Although the microscopic plant-like organisms occur naturally, they can also produce toxins which may be harmful to people who swim or fish in the water. Children and pets in particular are being cautioned to stay away from areas where the advisories have been posted. Mayor Tom Rowett says the situation is being monitored, and more information will be made available after further testing of water samples from the area is complete.
