People who draw wat­er from the lake are advised to watch for an oily sheen and distinct odour. If present, they should avoid using the wate­r. Boiling the water will not make it sa­fe to drink.

Surface water should never be consumed unless properly filt­ered, disinfected and monitored for water quality.

People with propert­ies on municipal wat­er supply can contin­ue to drink their wa­ter.
