Lake County urges recreationists to watch for toxic algae

Hot summer weather along with reservoirs and waterways running high have created conditions for potential harmful algae blooms.

“After three relatively dry years, the runoff from this winter has washed nutrients into waterways which, when combined with sunlight and water temperatures that suspend algae near the surface, has created a fairly rare situation where algae has the opportunity to thrive,” said Lake County Livestock Extension Agent Pete Schreder.
