Dog Dies After Exposure to Toxin at Anderson Lake
A dog that was exposed to a toxin in the water at Anderson Lake has died and its owner was exposed.

The death Sunday was the third dog death recorded since 2006, when two died and forced weekly testing of the lake the following year.

The lake was closed last Thursday after a sample May 6 was found to have 9.5 micrograms per liter of anatoxin-a, said Michael Dawson, water quality manager for Jefferson County Public Health.

Testing resumed in April following the last of the season in November. Low levels were found April 29, but since then, the toxin created by the blue-green algae has blossomed to an amount above the recreational threshold of 1 microgram per liter.
