Alert :

An update from the Ministry of the Environment and Climate Change for the sampling at the confluence of the Driftwood Rivers and the Black Rivers has indicated that microcystins, the toxin produced by blue-green algae, were present but did not exceed the Ontario Drinking Water Quality Standards or Health Canada’s recreational water guideline. However, when algae blooms are visible in waters the Porcupine Health Unit encourages residents to follow these precautions.
