Blue-Green Algae Levels at Northwood Lake

Blue-Green Algae Levels at Northwood Lake
Posted on 08/08/2022
The Bassett Creek Watershed Management Commission has documented algae levels in Northwood Lake within the World Health Organization (WHO) category of a “moderate probability of adverse health effects.” The results include blue-green algae that can potentially be toxic to humans and pets.

The City recommends that residents avoid direct contact with the water and keep children and pets out of it, especially if it looks like pea soup or spilled green paint.
