Toxic Algae Detected at Willow Creek

Toxic Algae Detected at Willow Creek

You would never expect the Swamp Thing from DC Comics to show up in our universe, but it sure is looking like it lately on some of our area lakes.

"Oak Lake Beach algea levels are samples monthly, and on demand if there are reports of algae blooms or water issues", said Glen Cassie (Public Affairs Specialist with Communications Services Manitoba) in an email August 1. Summit Lake was declared in a state of emergency back in May after an algae bloom turned toxic. Many lakes and waters across the country have had toxic algae blooms that limit recreation. This would typically help keep the concentrations of the blooms down below unhealthy levels.

The Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services said Friday that testing of Bluestem Lake west of Sprague and Willow Creek Lake near Pierce detected toxin produced by blue-green algal blooms.

Because it is unknown when an algae bloom becomes toxic, officials warn people should avoid contact with water that has visible algae or algae scum on the surface. If the bloom looks green from the shore or from a boat it means the toxicity is most likely harmful.
