A potentially toxic algae bloom continues its life cycle in the lake. This is one of our annual algae blooms which might produce toxins as it decomposes. Samples taken on June 28th did not produce toxins when analyzed by the lab. The typical blue/green algae life cycle is three to five weeks and different algae strains that produce toxins could break out at any time.
We are early in our summer and can expect a second blue/green algae bloom on the lake. All users of the lake should be cautious with water activities when the bloom occurs. During an algae bloom, lake residents are encouraged to keep children and pets out of the water. Adults should refrain from swimming to avoid eye irritation and/or intestinal illness. Boating and fishing are safe currently.
For now, be alert with water activity, especially children and pets. If an algae turns toxic we won’t know until after it happens.

Under my dock I have a tire with a Styrofoam Center with the embedded letters TOPPER. Not sure if from someone’s floating dock or something I should dispose of. It is really heavy and I’m not sure how to dispose of it.
My address is 20306 NE Interlachen Lane.
