The City of Winchester has been monitoring the Harmful Algae Bloom on the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.

The city received the results from their most recent tests.

The laboratory found the City’s drinking water to be completely safe and showed no signs of cyanotoxins.

Since first observing the harmful algae bloom 1.5 miles from the city’s water intake point, Winchester and the Virginia Department of Health have closely monitored water quality and optimized the treatment process to prevent health impacts from the algal bloom.
