Green Water – Don’t Go In
Ottawa County Health Department issued a no-body contact advisory for two area parks that are dealing with blue-green algae blooms. Algae blooms usually occur in the summer, because algae need sunlight, nitrogen and phosphorus to grow. The hot, dry weather has created an environment where algae can thrive.

Algae exposure can cause skin rashes as well as hives or blisters; swallowing water can cause abdominal pain, diarrhea and vomiting. Even inhaling water drops can cause runny eyes and nose, a sore throat, asthma-like symptoms or allergic reactions. So, if the water is green, don’t go in and don’t let your pets go in either.
