Non-toxic Blue Green

Over the past weekend we experienced an algal bloom in Fairview Lake thought to be a blue-green (Cyanobacteria). This was confirmed by Stan Geiger, an independent aquatic plant biologist for many years. The algae was indentified as Anabaena spiroides, a species that DOES NOT break down into toxins. So currently all lake activities are considered safe.

    Thanks. This was a concern for me because of my grandchildren wanting to use the lake.

    Also, a huge thank you to all those who dedicated time and energy to the fabulous fireworks. What a show!!
