Cyanobacteria Blooms

Sadly we are once again starting to experience cyanobacteria blooms on the lake.  The photo below is from this morning on Point Road.  We also had a bloom a few weeks ago that was more widely spread.  Should you see anything like this, you should avoid going in it and especially keep your young kids and pets out of it.

As a reminder, cyanobacteria is in every fresh water body in the world.  Blooms however happen depending on a multiple of conditions such as temperature, phosphorus levels, rain fall, etc. etc. etc..  The blooms can come quick and then disappear quickly or they can stay around for a while.  As stated above .. just avoid them.
