Toxic Algae in Lake Needwood
Lake Needwood is a 75 acre reservoir located in Derwood, Maryland. The lake was created to provide flood control to Rock Creek and to protect the creeks water quality by acting as a retention basin to trap sediment from stormwater runoff.

This past fall Lake Needwood posted warning signs to “Avoid contact with Lake Water” after testing positive for toxic algae. Harmful algal blooms are often triggered by excessive levels of nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. The excess nutrients come from many sources such as aquatic plants and fertilizers and stimulate the growth of algae.

Invasive Hydrilla Plant discovered in New York - Hydrilla is a highly invasive aquatic plant that can grow up to an inch per day, creating a thick mat of vegetation when it reaches the water's surface. Hydrilla quickly shades out other aquatic plants, displacing native species, as well as clogging waterways and interfering with boating, fishing and swimming.
