Certainly wouldn't want to swim there:
The Okanagan Indian Band says an assessment of Okanagan Lake water in the northern arm has found a combination of high organic material including sewage output, grass leaves, burlap, sand and dead animals combined with the high temperatures of the past few days has resulted in an algae bloom.

The OKIB's emergency operations centre will be monitoring the bloom but residents are advised it will be a common sight over the coming days.

Residents and visitors are advised not to go into the water, drink or have contact with the water.

Truths can be backed up by facts - do you have any?
