What’s on the Lake?

Are you seeing strange looking scum on the lake? The Village had the lake tested this week by the Lake County Health Department. The result was a combination of filamentous algae, pollen and also some blue-green algae. The blue-green is not a dangerous level and the Village will continue to monitor. The recommendation of the LCHD is ‘WHEN IN DOUBT STAY OUT” because blooms can change over time. If a visible bloom is present, the best course of action is to limit exposure, especially with pets and children who are more prone to ingesting water.
