The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has confirmed blue-green algae in Mississippi Lake. Testing took place in the vicinity of Cookes Shore, in Drummond North Elmsley. The results show levels above the Ontario drinking water standard and slightly below the recreational water standard. The toxin associated with blue-green algae was present at levels of 19 ppb.
