All samples collected on July 5th were analyzed for blue-green algal toxins using the protein phosphatase inhibition assay. Water quality was good. Traces of blue-green algae were present but no visible blooms were observed.
These samples showed minimal risk for microcystin toxins.
Users are still encouraged to avoid contact with visible blooms as other irritants may be present.
