BLUE-GREEN ALGAE INFO: Blue-green algae is found in our lakes year round. When conditions are right, cells can reproduce in large numbers, and can result in a harmful algal bloom (HAB). We test many of our beaches where people use the water in the summer, but HABs may occur in other seasons too. Watch for algae accumulation, avoid drinking or cooking with lake water, and do not allow children or pets to swim where algae accumulation is present. For more information, visit www.algae.in.gov/ or read our FAQ sheet at www.in.gov/dnr/parklake/files/sp-BlueGreenAlgae.pdf .
