Updated March 2019: The health warning mentioned in this article for Pegasus Lake has been lifted and the water is currently safe for swimming.
Lake Pegasus was previously off-limits for swimming, after the Canterbury District Health Board identified potentially toxic blue-green algae (planktonic cyanobacteria) in the water and issued a public health notice.
Warning signs were put in place around the lake notifying passers-by of the health danger posed by the water.
While the lake has been impacted on by algal bloom in the past, it had enjoyed a clean bill of health this summer, up until this warning notice. People and animals, particularly children and dogs, should avoid contact with Lake Pegasus until the warning has been lifted.
The bloom will be monitored on a weekly basis and the public will be advised of any changes to its status.
