Advisory For Whitby Beach

Ontario's Ministry of the Environment, Conservation, and Parks has informed Durham Region's Health Department that the presence of blue-green algae has been detected in water samples taken from Whitby Beach. The lab results were from samples taken between Heydenshore Park and Rotary Sunrise Park. The current level is not considered dangerous, but advisory signs have been posted urging the public to exercise caution. Blue-green algae are microscopic, plant-like organisms that occur naturally in ponds, rivers, lakes, and streams.
